Walks for 2020


Coronavirus update


Due to a constantly changing situation all organised walks have been cancelled  until further notice.  When group walking is permitted we will notify walk leaders and members so that the proposed programme can be resumed.


Updated official walking information can be seen on The Rambler's Website - www.ramblers.org.uk.


Meanwhile please keep healthy and stay safe.  Telephone or email communications are the best ways to keep in touch.  


When walking is resumed, please will walk leaders give full details of location and timing to Jean Pritchett at least three weeks prior to the walk.  If car sharing is possible, the leader should also state where members can meet and at what time and where cars can be parked prior to the walk.  Phone 01606 76055 or email zpritchett@aol.com


If a leader has to cancel or change the walk arrangements please notify Denise Davies as soon as possible by phone to 01606 41251 or 07932 150516 or email denisedavies@uwclub.net.

Saturday  20th June 2020    Weekend Away in Helmsley  Arranged by Jean and Alan Briers.


Please note that due to the lock-down restrictions, this weekend away has had to be cancelled because hotels will not be opened until later in the summer and large walking and dining groups are not permitted.  Members who have already booked (and possibly paid for) accommodation in Helmsley should be able to obtain a refund of their payment.


Alan has promised to rearrange the planned weekend next year at a date to be decided.  


It is likely that other proposed walks will also have to be cancelled - but we will try to notify all members when walking will be resumed - so watch this space and check your emails.
