A walker from the Old Town said the Forster Birthday Walk was a massive success today with a record turnout. We welcomed Margaret Ashby, our co-founder, a local historian and writer of many books on the history of both Stevenage and Forster as the guest of honour. I as the Chair of The Friends of Forster Country, was the walk guide. I personally would like to thank all the people who attended the walk and came along to support The Friends of Forster Country in their bid to halt the proposed building of 800 homes and a school on Forster Country.
It just leaves me to say a very Happy 141st Birthday to a man who went on to become one of the greatest writers of the 20th century.
