Summarised from the Summer Newsletter 2019

We currently have 102 members but no new members since the Spring newsletter in February. Happily, the walks organisers have been able to complete the programme for July to December 2019 which can be viewed in the Walks Calendar tab on this website. No walks have been planned around Christmas time as it was felt that many people get busy in the build-up to the festive season.

36 members joined the coach ramble to Warwick on April 27th.   As usual we were able to park at West Wycombe and take the coach to Warwick where it was able to park all day in the Castle grounds.  26 members took part in a dry but rather chilly 5 mile walk around the town before passing Warwick Race Course. The walk continued along the canal before returning to the castle, with its gardens and the river. The rest of the day was free to wander around the castle, visit the museum or St Mary’s Church.  We are considering Salisbury as a possible venue next year .

Earlier in April, 36 members spent a long weekend at Harrington House in Bourton-on-the-Water – one HFHolidays country hotels. Following refurbishment last year, the standard of accommodation was very good. The three leaders provided were also very good and the food was excellent, for the most part.

Our penultimate weekend break will be to the Warners Hotel at Cricket St Thomas in Somerset near Chard from October 11th to 14th.   36 members have reserved a place there.

The walks programme up to December 2019 is now available.  Details are listed on the Walks Calendar page of this website and it is also possible to download the full 6 month programme from the link at the bottom of that page..
