Latest Newsletter: Spring 2018

First, a Huge Thanks to the Winter walks organiser Graham Gill. Most of the walks were very well supported… only the weather made folks think twice! Also to Jane Smith for setting up the Summer 2018 Walks Programme. Also, thanks to all those who have stepped forward to lead walks, especially to those new to walk leading. We have again, a superb selection of walks to look forward to, to and from all points north, south, east and west of Dronny.

Your committee have had a (pub) meeting, we chatted about all sorts…the Summer Programme, Pea and Pie supper, membership numbers, the AGM, anybody want another pint…. will Walk Leaders tactfully ask if partakers have paid their subs….. remind them to book pea and pie…. Car share when possible….
