Pillowell – that’s a hill!

A dozen or so members of the Society decided not to do the ironing (in front of the television…tennis anyone? or racing? ) this afternoon and instead follow fellow members Steve Cooper and Geoff Davis on our tour of Pillowell.  Steve is also the Chairman of the FW Harvey Society, so our walk was punctuated with notes about Harvey’s favourite pub, his first married home, and even some poems. The rain showers were mercifully brief, and no-one minded anyway, given this was a part of the Forest which few of us had even seen, let alone knew much about.  Many thanks to the Methodist Church for opening up for us, and also to FWH’s daughter who kindly invited us for tea at Harvey’s old home, Highview. Full details and more pictures in the next newsletter.
