BLUEBELL time is approaching with the onset of Spring and the native flowers will be among the highlights on next month's Lions Walk in aid of Grove House.
The guided walk, which takes place on Sunday, April 25, offers a choice of four distances - three, seven, 13 or 18 miles - along the pathways of Herts and the newly-planted Heartwood Forest at Sandridge.
The forest, which is being planted by the Woodland Trust, boasts 45 acres of ancient woodland and is home to many rare butterflies and the protected English bluebell. It will eventually be an 850-acre area of beautiful, broadleaved woodland.
Lion Willie Martin said: "This is a great opportunity to walk through our wonderful local woodland areas and support Grove House. The St Albans Lions Club are proud to be able to continue and support the hospice - Grove House provides more than 9,000 free treatments and consultations each year to people faced with life-threatening illness.
