Walking Events

Charity Walk 31st July& BBQ

This walk proved to be very popular with 37 members attending. Combining walk fees with donations from  members who were unable to attend we raised £205.00 in total for charity (Cancer Research and The Alzheimer’s Society). Thank-you to everyone who attended the walk and helped to make this event such a great success.


Social Events

  1. Summer Party: Thursday 25th August at The Cornichon.

23 members attended our Summer Party at the Cornichon in Tarvin. The food proved to be excellent value for money (only £15.00 for 3 courses) and we enjoyed a very relaxed evening, with of course excellent company.


  1. Christmas Party: Friday 2nd December at Willington Hall.

We are booked into the Orangery (a new room which overlooks the gardens and surrounding countryside). We will not be having a disco this year to enable members to mingle and chat uninterrupted all evening.

Separate email for full details to follow shortly.


Walking Holidays 2016

  1. Autumn Walking Weekend 2016 – Glaramara, Keswick – 23rd -26th September 2016

We have been very lucky this year with not only the weather, but also the accommodation we have stayed in and Glaramara was no exception. This Outdoor Centre was refurbished a few years ago and now provides good quality rooms, excellent food along with friendly and helpful staff. The location and surrounding area was beautiful. Walks were challenging and afforded great views for all level walks. Many members have already expressed an interest in returning.

OHWC Database

Our database requires up-dating as some of the details held (addresses/dietary requirement/phone numbers etc.) would appear to be out of date. We would also like to ascertain whether everyone on the database wishes to remain on our contact list.

In the next few weeks I will be emailing each member individually and asking everyone to amend any incorrect information. A prompt response would be much appreciated.
