    WALKING THROUGH OUR PARISHES 

    HARPLEY

    On June 1st we did the first of our walks starting at East Walton and travilling through the fields of barley up to the piggeries.

    What an interesting time with an outline of pig farming , a regular part of farm life here in Norfolk.

    With friends old and new and here we see Chrissie with a piglet just a few days old.

    It was a lovely way to spend an afternoon so do come along to our next walk at the end of the month in Harplety

    with tea in David's garden at the finish.
