4 January 2021 - Important
Following the Prime Minister's latest announcement
on the national lockdown, due to Covid19 precautions, all
walks, including the limited programme for members only,
have now been cancelled until further notice.
10 December 2020 - Chairman's Update
At last we have reason to believe that there
is now a glimmer of light at the end of a very long tunnel.
The start of the innoculation programme to combat COVID19
gives us hope that eventually we will be able to resume
our walks without restrictions. Our bubble and Thursday
walks are proving popular, ensuring that members can keep
in touch and enjoy each other's company in the fresh air.
I hope that you can enjoy the Christmas period and, with
the promise of a better and healthy New Year, we have something
positive to look forward to in 2021.

situation regarding holiday bookings that have been cancelled
due to Coronavirus.
They are not making refunds but are offering
So that members are not out of pocket, the
Dovedale weekend that should have taken place on Friday
20th March for 3 nights has now been transferred to:
Friday 15th October 2021 for 3 nights
The same guest list will stand, but they understand
that not everyone on the guest list will be available to
go within the new dates.
In this case so that members don't lose money,
we hope to arrange for anyone that can't go to swap with
a member that can go. The new member taking someone else's
place would reimburse the original member the full cost.
The total cost of this weekend was £240 per person.
This is the best solution that we can manage
at this moment in time.
If any of this information changes we will
let you know via this website.
