Keeping in Touch - February

Hi there!

Our January weekend away was a great success. A huge thank you to Andy for the amazing organisation he has put in to this, as well as sorting out two wonderful walks in the surrounding area. His attention to detail made the weekend go without a hitch, the hostel was excellent and we were hosted by the Burton Hotel for a delicious meal on the Saturday evening. A very good time was had by all and we all appreciate the excellent planning Andy put into this.

Single Boots AGM This will take place on the 7th April. The venue to be confirmed. All full members are welcome and it will be preceded by our usual walk with tea and cakes provided afterwards. Any proposed changes to our constitution (which can be seen on our website) need to be sent by email to by 10th February.

Dave P will be stepping down from his position as vice chair and Jackie will also be vacating the secretary’s role (not minutes.) As always anyone is welcome to come on board the committee at the AGM and if you’d like to do so please contact a member of the present committee or have a chat on one of our walks.

Membership renewal It’s that time of year again! You will be receiving an email from Veronica, who is now looking after our membership and database, inviting you to renew your membership. As agreed at the last AGM, our subscription is now £20 for the year.

May weekend 2019 For those who have booked on our May weekend away, the balance is due on 1st February. You will be getting an email from Val to remind you. There are a few spaces left, so there’s still time to book a place if you’d like to go. Check out the accommodation on This weekend is for full members only and comes as a package. If you didn’t receive the booking form or have any queries, please contact Val
