A new series of Trinity Travel Talks by Steuart and Anita Kellington starts tomorrow with Springtime on Speyside at 7-30 pm at Trinity Methodist Church and Community Hub, Parson Lane, Clitheroe, BB7 2JY.

Steuart said: “The River Spey is one of our fastest flowing rivers and famous for salmon fishing and whisky distilleries. We followed on foot the beautiful river from the traditional source at Loch Spey in the rugged Monadhliath mountains and walked 105 miles to the sea in the Moray Firth, including the Badenoch Way and Speyside Way. We visited popular Aviemore, the famous Osprey Centre at Loch Garten and the summit of Cairngorm. Snow was still present on the Monadhliath mountains and Cairngorm contrasting beautifully with the green valleys and spring flowers. We really enjoyed our walking on Speyside and had excellent weather apart from just one half-day.”

Springtime on Speyside is the first in a series of six Trinity Travel Talks during the autumn and winter. The second talk will be Alaskan Odyssey on Friday, November 4th. A brochure of all the talks may be collected from Clitheroe Library or the Platform gallery near Clitheroe Station.

Admission is £5 payable at the door (no tickets), including interval refreshments, with net proceeds for Trinity Church Development Fund. (Charity number 1129609).
