Keeping in Touch - July

Hi there!

August 4th Single Boots 20th Anniversary Picnic We’re looking forward to seeing you at our summer picnic at Lowsonford village hall. You should have received a flyer by now with more information, which we hope you have shared with any past members you may still be in touch with.

Let’s hope the good weather continues, although we can always go inside the village hall if not. If you’d like any further information, email Dave P at

May weekend 2020 Following the announcement from the government that next year’s early May bank holiday will be moved to Friday 8th May, we have consulted as many members as we could and have moved our May weekend to accommodate the new dates. Therefore our long weekend will be from Thursday 7th to Sunday 10th May 2020 and we will be in Dorset at a large house in Charmouth right next to the sea. There will be walks on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday in this wonderful area. So make sure you put the dates in your diary!

Navigation days We have scheduled a couple of dates in our programme for you to learn and improve your navigation skills:

26th October will be for beginners and basic skills led by Val

2nd November will be for more advanced skills including a chance to experience night navigation.

This will be led by Dave P.

There’ll be more information coming from each leader, but do get in touch with them if you’d like to know more, or have a chat on a walk.

Membership This is quite healthy, but we’re always looking to keep new members coming in. We have now received more flyers and business cards. If you know anywhere you can put a flyer, do collect some from Jackie, or refill your stash of business cards from Dave P.

Informal weekends away Thank you so much to Helen & Colin for a wonderful Three Castles weekend. It’s quite a forgotten area and good to be reminded of the outstanding landscape we have access to from the Midlands.
