Exploring Oadby on May Day

[An image showing Exploring Oadby on May Day]I led a Guided Walk around Oadby on May Day.

By this I actually mean May Day - there is only one May Day, which is 1st May, as opposed to the Bank Holiday somewhere near it.

When asked by a community organisation to lead a walk as part of a day of festiviies in the town, I was very pleased - not just to do it, but that they had arranged it on the correct day.

Starting outside the pub known as the Old Library, I took the group around the oldest parts of Oadby, and explained some of its history, including its origins in the period of Danish occupation of the East Midlands.
