Keeping in Touch - April

Hi there!

This month sees our Annual General Meeting, 15th April at Welland Village Hall at 3.15pm. It is preceded by a walk in the area led by Cliff. If you can’t make the walk, please do join us for the AGM and for the tea and cakes we will be providing beforehand. We hope as many of you as possible will come along. It’s your chance to discuss how the group is doing and bring your ideas to the table.

We are looking for someone to take over the role of May weekend coordinator. Please think if you could do this and discuss it with any member of the committee, especially Barbara who has been doing an excellent job over the last few years. Here’s what’s involved:

  • Booking and contact for May weekend accommodation & pub meal

  • Taking bookings, payments and banking cheques

  • Sending information, booking form etc out to members

(Hunting for properties is a whole committee endeavour, as is earmarking & reccying walks.)

Your contributions We hope you are enjoying the new website! It certainly seems to be attracting new temporary members, although we do need to work hard to convert these into full members. Don’t forget to contribute with your photos, recipes and any short write up you’d like to offer. It’s easy to download your files through the members’ page in the Sharing section.

The walks programme is looking good. Let’s hope the snow has finished and we don’t have to cancel any more of your valued contributions! Vacancies in the diary as follows:

  • June 17th, a local walk needed (Dolgellau weekend)

  • July 8th

  • July 22nd

  • July 29th

Do look at the diary on our website to see where others may be leading walks so that you can complement them with your own...

You should recently have received an updated information sheet about our informal weekends away. Upcoming weekends:

  • May weekend (full)

  • July 13th – 16th South West Coast Path Contact: Val 07760 272712

  • August 3rd – 5th Bala, mid-Wales Contact: John 07746 838108

Last call for renewals! If you haven’t renewed yet, please do it as soon as you can to take advantage of Single Boots weekly walks and weekends away. If you have renewed by BACS, do make sure you have communicated to Rose. There are a few members who haven’t done that and so do not appear on the new database!

See you out on a walk soon!
