From Walking Groups to Museums

10th May 2019, 10:26am | By David |

Brian and Roy are fellow walkers from Melksham Get Wiltshire Walking group.

Brian joined the weekly walk in Melksham in 2012 and shortly afterwards he agreed to train as a walk leader.

In 2016 Roy was invited to join the Melksham group by another walker and enjoyed the experience so much that he together with Brian and several others from the group began to travel across to Devizes every Friday to walk with that group.

More recently Roy has also trained to help us lead these free weekly walks.

Over time the two chaps have become great friends sharing many different interests, Roy loves photography and is also a keen wildlife photographer whilst Brian enjoys antiques, car boot sales and trawling ebay for that ever elusive pot of gold!

One interest they share is their love of history and all things historic.

Not surprising then that recently they have purchased museum season tickets which will allow them access to a host of different exhibitions and museums across the country, sharing transport costs and enjoying one another’s company.

You can see how this wonderful walking project is bringing likeminded people together to share hobbies, pastimes and all manner of social occasions.
