Feedback on the first walk, 25 May 2021 has been very positive. For example:

The guided walk which was organised through USRA on Tuesday was really enjoyable. Weather settled down after first 10mins. Good to go on paths I’ve never been on, despite much walking in lockdown. We have such beautiful countryside around us.Made new friends, and had a thoroughly good afternoon. Thank you to Simon and Simone for guiding us. Looking forward to the next one in June. These little ‘panda sheep’ we met were oh so cute!!!
