As an ex- Avon representative, I found many ways to walk 'my territory' via the paths and shortcuts around Whitchurch.

Please join me on this walk to, maybe, find a shortcut that you didn't know about, and to see some changes that are being made in the town.

If you choose to go on this walk, you can also choose to join an afternoon walk.
