Group & Social News



 We hope you’ve managed to get walking and have enjoyed the wonderful summer. The forecast is that it will continue - let’s hope so as a warm autumn will make the winter appear shorter.

 We had a great September walking weekend at Kings Lynn; the weather was very kind to us and we had some lovely, varied walks. Thanks to Norman for organising it, and to the walks leaders and everyone else involved. The group had been there two years ago; we stayed at the same lovely hotel and members wanted to see more of the area as well.

The AGM this year will be held on 15th November.  It’s a very sociable occasion, with cheese and wine following the formal part of the evening. If you’re a member of the group and have not been before, do try to come along. We have a visiting speaker this year, and you may meet members who you haven’t yet met on the walks.

You will have seen by the Walks Programme that the club is very short of walk leaders. Dave is having trouble finding enough walks for every Sunday. On many Sundays there is either only a short walk or a long one. Come on members - please try your hand at leading a walk! There are experienced leaders to help you get started.

Our thanks go to Steve for volunteering to take on the job of entering the groups’ walks onto the Internet. This is greatly appreciated. The group has several posts that are currently vacant, or will be by the time of the AGM, so please consider volunteering for a post to help support the group for all our members.

 We hope to see you all at the AGM, if not out on a walk.
