A group of eight Rotarians and one dog held their Christmas walk on Wednesday 13th December.
The walk was from Al Volo restaurant outside Rufforth to visit the York Community Wood a year on from our last visit. The weather was a bit mixed, we started with a rainbow, but overall it remained dry.
The walk sets out around the perimeter of the former Harewood Win tip site which is now landscaped and it then picks up a path that walks along the edge of the community wood. Since last year progress has been made with the construction of stone paths that will meander between the areas of woodland. We did not have time to walk down to the Knapton end of the wood, but there progress has been made with the planting. The community wood will be a great facility, it is just that it will take a number of years to develop and mature.
After the walk we enjoyed a lunch at Al Volo overlooking Rufforth airfield. We now look forward to many more walks in 2024.
