Keeping in Touch - March


Hi there!

Extreme weather conditions We don’t like cancelling walks, but as we have seen in the last few weeks, we are sometimes experiencing more tricky weather conditions. If you are unsure whether a walk is proceeding, in the first instance, call the walk leader. As a leader, if you’re unsure or unhappy about the forecast, contact Andy W 07801 441831 andrewwheeler587@btinternet.com or another member of the committee. Please make your final decision by noon on the Saturday before the walk as the forecast can change in a few days.

Membership renewal A reminder that your membership is due for renewal by the beginning of March. If you haven’t already done so, please send your form and payment (BACS payments are preferred) to Veronica vetrevena1@btinternet.com

May weekend on the Dorset coast (7th-10th) We have now booked the extra accommodation for our popular weekend away and there are two spaces still available. So if you’d like to come along, do get in touch with Val as soon as possible! val.thomas02@gmail.com

Single Boots AGM 2020 will be held on Sunday April 19th and all full members are welcome. The meeting will be held at Dumbleton village hall and there’ll be a slightly shorter walk beforehand followed by tea and cakes. (More details on the next programme.) We’d love to see you all there, so do put the date in the diary. The AGM is your chance to come and touch base with the way our club runs and to share your thoughts. If you’d like to join the committee, please let us know! Dave P and Julia will be standing down from their roles. Please make sure you have read the draft of our revised constitution sent to you recently by Dave P as we will be voting on it at our meeting.

Calling all members!

THE CLUB NEEDS A NEW TREASURER!! We cannot function without one.

Please email or speak to Julia H hallbandj@btinternet.com or Veronica vetrevena1@btinternet.com if you think you might be able to help out with this financial role.
