Newsletter May 14

Hi Everyone This is the latest Newsflash – information and news of the club’s activities.

Walk Programme A reminder the latest programme, which also includes details of the Wainwrights, is available on the website.

The Wainwrights 9-11 May – Patterdale – Easier Walk on Saturday We have received a good response to the Wainwright Programme for this year. 20 of us are now booked for Patterdale in May and the option of an easier walk will be available on Saturday 10 May – further details to follow.

Walking Weekends – 2015 – Dates for your diary  

Spring Walking Weekend – Church Stretton, Shropshire – 10 April 2015 Further details to be circulated as soon as possible.

Autumn Walking Weekend – Connistonwater, Lake District – 2 October 2015 You may remember at the AGM this was a clear favourite and links to the walking programme for the Wainwrights. We could not get the suggested timing of September as this is still peak season for HF Holidays but have managed to seek the earliest date to provide the best daylight hours to cater for longer walks. More details to be circulated as soon as possible.

Summer Holiday 2015 We are starting to research some options for next year including Ireland, Scotland, Polish Tantras and Bavaria. Are you interested any in any of these? Why not post message in the Members’ Forum (now discontinued)

Social Events 2014

Summer Supper We noted, through the recent survey, that many of you would still like a get together, opportunity for a quite chat over supper in the summer. We are therefore planning a Summer Supper in August/early September at the Bluebell Café, Barrowmore Industrial Estate which is run by Leonie who has done catering for the club in the past. More details as soon as possible.

Christmas Party and Disco – Eaton Golf Club We have also learnt that many of you still love the opportunity to dance as well as social and eat so we hope to do this at the Eaton Golf Club early in December.
