To celebrate my achieving threescore years and ten I intend to walk the bottom end of Offa’s Dyke, from Hay on Wye to Chepstow, from 7th. to 11th. May. I know, compared with kayaking up the Zambesi or rowing across the Atlantic, it seems rather tame. However I hope to recruit some musical friends to join me in singing at the historic churches en route. The Amber trust is a splendid charity, enabling blind and partially sighted children to make music. This year it celebrates a quarter century of fundraising.
