Chris Lowe has kindly passed on that the above store is now part of Cotswold Outdoor and that he obtained a 15% discount on purchases made. They also gave him a card that can be used at both stores as they now recognise Old Hall Walking Club and have our clubs details. This card also removes the need to produce a receipt for returns but the main advantage is that you get an extra year guarantee so 2 years on all purchases.

  1. Old Hall Walking Club Diary.

I have tried to pass on diaries to as many people as possible. Those who still do not have one will receive one through the post this week.
