Boot Women not missed a month since 1993

1993

Inge was one of the initiators of , a walking group for lesbians. I remember the discussions, upstairs at the , years after the pub was no longer lesbian, we got together on a Tuesday, just a few friends and it just came out of an idea, hand out flyers, maybe some women would come. The first walk was March 93 and weve not missed a month since! Id been to the in Wolverhampton the night before, we got a coach from the , (it used to be much better then, quieter, you could talk to people). I didnt get back till 4 a.m. but I was there on the bridge of the at 9:00a.m. That formula continues, meet on the bridge, or at the start of the walk. Then, it was the first Sunday, now its the second Sunday of the month.
I am so pleased it has carried on, some of the people who were there in the beginning are still there. I was involved for ten years, but am less involved now.
