Terry's Reading Walkabouts
I set up my guided walks with the following aims/objectives:-
1. To get fit and to pass on my love of local history/culture, famous people, battles, architecture, gardens, buildings, events and so much more in a fun way about Reading.
2. All monies go to manly local charities as a retirement hobby.
Being very successful, I now have 15 different Walkabout Routes/Themes:-
