Event description

Description

What could be better than a stroll along aside the gentle flow of Kennet and Avon canal as narrow boats chug past and the hazy autumn sun sets across this world heratage city. With a group of like-minded people for company and a best selling booze author pointing out some of the wonderful plants that can be turned into great drinks? Well doing all that with a drink in your hand of course!

Q. What can I expect?

A. The Radio 4 food programme came along for one of the walks and they captured the walk beautifully.

Q. Can I buy a copy of Booze for Free or Brewing Britain on the walk.

A. Yes, but tell me beforehand. I cycle to the venue and so I’ll need to bring the book(s) with me. I will charge £10 for each book. Please email me at least a week in advance so I can order copies in.

Q. Why has Edward Woodward got four D’s in his name?

A. Because if he didn’t he’d be Ewar Woowar.

Q. What shoes shall I wear?

A. The path is partly unpathed and so if its been raining it will be an idea to wear a good pair of boots. High heels are out, whenever I’ve tried the route in them the heels keep getting caught in the mud.

Q. Will you cancel due to bad weather.

A. Much of the walk is under tree cover, so unless its dangerous to proceed we will carry on regardless of what the weather throws at us. The BBC Food programme actually recorded us in bad weather and it was one of the best walks I’ve done. Just wear a rain coat and bring a brolley.

Q. I’ll allergic to certain foods, do I need to tell you?

A. Yes please. If you are allergic to anything please let me know. Also if you can let me know if you are pregnant too.

Q. How long will the walk last for.

A. I go at the speed the group dictates and if there are a lot of questions it can take longer. The shortest possible is a 1 hour walk, but do allow for up to 2 or more hours.

Q. I understand that you have written some homebrew books, does this mean I can pick your brain about my elderflower champage/sloe gin/beer brewing?

A. Of course. There is a point when turn around and walk back the way we came. This is a good point for anwsering questions. Although, I will be anwsering as many questions as I can on the way too.

Q. Can I bring along a child?

A. No. Sorry but this is an adult only event. Please make other arrangements for childcare.

Q. Can I bring my dog?

A. No. Sorry to sound harsh, but it’s much easier to say no to one dog owner than to ask the rest of the walkers if they are ok with dogs.

Q. I’ve paid in full and something has come up can I have my money back?

A. Ah, well. I'm a one man operation and I don't make a fortune. I ask that you please make sure you can attend when you book.
