Walking

Many residents, and indeed many members of the local community as well, enjoy the great walks that we are privileged to enjoy here in Davistown. There is an abundance of scenic walks down along what we call “The Waterfront” to the south of the village and around the “Back of the Village” where there is a very long walking pathway which follows the Broadwater around to Kincumber. Each of these walks is well away from traffic and they are very peaceful.
And do not forget our village walkers who set off as a group every Friday morning from the Centre. Have a look at the “Whats On” page of this website or the back of a recent AWARE for timings and details. The walks are conducted at your own easy pace and we all meet back at the Centre for a chat and a coffee and a snack afterwards. (Covid restrictions allowing)

24 September 2021

Hooray!!!! Our Friday Walking Group have  claimed the credit for being the first activity to return full time as we begin to come out of the current Covid lockdown..
(we don’t count the mini Happy Hours and Sunday Lunches last weekend)

 And here are the happy walkers about to “hit the road”.
Your photographer must confess to causing them to bunch up and briefly not maintain “social distancing” while the photograph was being taken, but they did spread out once on the walk…☹️☹️

Walking Group Lunch – 23 April 2021

The Alloura Walkers Group usually leave the centre at 9:30am each Friday morning but on this day they changed the routine. Leaving at 11:15am a large group of walkers set off for the Kincumber Hotel arriving around 12noon just in time for a pleasant lunch. Others drove around. After lunch several even had the energy to walk back to the Village rather than get a ride.

The Kincumber Hotel happily accepted the State Government issued Dine & Discover vouchers worth $25 to pay for two meals so the lunch was at no cost to us (Thank you very much Gladys).
(For our interstate readers, the following explains this NSW covid relief measure;
“The NSW Government has launched Dine & Discover NSW to encourage the community to get out and about, to support dining, arts and recreation and stimulating spending in the economy. All NSW residents aged 18 and over can apply for 4 x $25 vouchers, worth $100 in total.” 
)

Here are few photographs of the happy diners.

The webmasters choice, Fish & Chips.
Jessie (top right) bakes cakes and biscuits for the walking group every Friday morning to have with their tea or coffee after the walk. She says that she just enjoys cooking. Keep it up Jessie..
