Black Lab loves to stay with Walkeys Day Care centre

Meet Helen who is lives in Ashampstead with her husband, two children and dog Tilly. Helen worked in a school before she joined Walkeys in 2014 and has become an invaluable member of our team. Nothing is too much trouble for her and has often helped our clients out at the very last minute and has also rescued a few clients who have locked themselves out of their homes. Luckily we carry keys. (WalKeys)


Born in New Zealand and settled here some years ago, Helen loves this country especially the picturesque village where she lives.

Helen is a strong character but is kind and patient which gives her the perfect personality to be a number 

one dog carer.

A few words from Helen


I grew up on a working sheep and cattle farm in Canterbury, New Zealand. We had 6 sheep dogs, 3 Cats and 4 ponies. My favourite dog was called Buck, a Hunter-way sheep dog. Buck was very gentle and would always be with me, especially when l helped Dad get the sheep in. We would often have to sit and wait for Dad and Buck used to just sit and lean on my shoulder or just lie across my legs. Bell, a heading dog was very loving and always in the garden. (Our dogs were not allowed in the garden) Moggy, the cat would chase her out. Moggy was a little grey wild cat that we found.
My Brother had a dog called Mavis who was a sheep dog and was a wonderful dog. She loved playing games and always getting into trouble. She had lots of puppies.

I Came over to England many years ago and worked as a Nanny. Many of the families had dogs too, so my life has been around animals, especially dogs.

I now live in Ashampstead with my Husband and two Children, a Labrador called Tui and two guniea pigs. 

I love it here, especially working as partner with Walkeys. We are a great team and I have some wonderful walks very close by.

 Aldworth and The Ridgeway


This is a simple but glorious walk which starts from Aldworth. Following the track beside the church until you reach the Ridgeway Path. You can either keep to the track or walk through fields with odd bits of woodland for variety.
The great joys of this walk is the feeling of being if not on top of the world, at least above much of it, and the lovely views over open country. The view east towards the Goring Gap is a particular pleasure.

        Rowden Downs Compton


The rolling downland tracks on this Berkshire route can be enjoyed by walkers, cyclists and horse riders alike. The walk starts from the village of Compton, five miles west of Streatley, and takes in the ancient Roden Downs and beautiful hedgerows bustling with wildlife. The terrain is mostly downland tracks with stiles or gates. The walk uses a section of the Ridgeway, one of the oldest 'roads' in Europe.

Drive past the Swan Hotel taking the Churn Road on the right. Drive to the top of this road where you can park next to some houses. 

Walk up the farm track and then take any route that takes your fancy. This is a beautiful area of outstanding beauty with wonderful panoramic views across the open countryside.

                 East Ilsley Ridgway


This walk also takes you up on the Ridgeway - although 'up' is relative, this part of the Ridgeway is not as high as further west or further east.  Much of it follows the ancient chalk ridge route used by prehistoric man which became known as the Icknield Way. It is characterised by the views and the variety of birds, as well as in this area the abundance of horseracing stables and gallops.

The remains of Roman buildings were found in the area, as well as a phenomenal number of Roman coins. A lead coffin, evidence of what is believed to have been a wealthy family burial plot dating from late Roman times, was found on Roden Down.

            Yattendon Road Walk


This walk probably dates from at least the 9th century. The path follows the original parish boundary bank and ditch. The pond at the west end is a flooded quarry dug for brick making materials. The hard concrete road under the leaf mould is a remnant of the World War 2 convoy camp. It runs 

through a Christmas tree plantation and is often overgrown at the southern end. 

Look for red campion and crosswort. The large chalk quarry at the western end is renowned for chalk loving plants, barren strawberries, marjoram etc. This route is of historic importance as it links the Pang Valley at Bradfield to the Ridgeway at Aldworth.
