Walking in some kind of normality!

It’s great that we now seem to be inching towards some sort of ‘normality’! It may be a “new normal” but welcome all the same. We’ve now moved onto a monthly rolling programme of walks, some of which don’t need booking. We also have a couple of social events planned, which gives us something else good to look forward to.

The group AGM will be held on 12th November. We will be looking for a new Vice-Chairman as well as a Walks Programme Co-ordinator, several Parish Footpaths Officers and various other vacant posts. If you’re interested in finding out more about them please contact a member of the Committee. The group can’t function without our volunteers!

Walks are our raison d’être and it would be lovely to see more on our programme, but – and this is a perennial plea – we need more walk leaders. Are you thinking this is something you could try? If you’re nervous about trying to lead a walk for the first time, have a chat with another leader – they would be very happy to help you ‘find your feet’!

As many of you will know, Bill and Doris set up our group back in 1992, and have worked hard as volunteers ever since then. They have now moved away; we’re very sorry to lose them but wish them well in their ‘pastures new’ – no doubt they’ll have many more beautiful walks to explore!
