Keeping in Touch - June

Hi there!

Important update!!!!! Our new Health and Safety Officer is Lin.

Her contact details are as follows and will appear at the end of each programme. tel: 07759 352008

If anyone is unfortunate enough to have an accident on one of our walks which requires hospital treatment, they MUST contact Lin at the earliest opportunity so that the appropriate documents can be filled in. This is a requirement of our insurance.

May weekends Last month saw 18 of our members enjoying the limestone landscapes of the Yorkshire Dales on the 2017 Single Boots May weekend. Thank you to all who made it such an enjoyable time with a variety of walks, delicious food and of course, great company. Please let Barbara have your feedback so that we can continue to organise these weekends in a way that best suits our membership. Next year’s accommodation has been booked and we look forward to exploring the countryside on the west of the Brecon Beacons. We will be staying at Cilgwyn Manor near Llangadog, Carmarthenshire. More information will be sent out in the autumn. We would welcome any thoughts you have regarding accommodation, location and cost to help us book our May weekends in the future.

January Youth Hostel weekend Please let Andy know if you are interested in coming along to the Wye Valley 12th to 14th January 2018. It’s in a fabulous location with great walking from the door. He does need more interest in order to make it viable and will need to make a decision soon. It’s a good opportunity to have a winter break in the lull after Christmas and these weekends have proved very successful. Check the hostel out at and let Andy know on

July walks We are still in need of walk leaders for the 23rd and 30th July. Please think about whether you can offer something on one of these weekends. Contact Andy on

Sharing your thoughts Don’t forget to let Jackie know your thoughts on the Christmas walk and social. We’d like to review this event and we value your ideas. If anyone would like the full draft minutes of the recent AGM (a resumé was included on last month’s programme) please get in touch.

Finally, you are always welcome to discuss any thoughts you have about the group and we are always happy to receive offers of help. Just chat to any member of the committee on a walk, give us a ring or email us!

See you out on a walk soon!
