Hi Calderdale members

I hope you are all well and keeping safe.

Please see the following email sent by Julie Crib, please send your views as soon as possible, do you think or want local group walk listings to continue to be published in Strider or would you be happy for walk listings to only be put on the website. 

Original email:-

Group walks have always been listed in Strider since our magazine started in 1977 (and before that, when the magazine was the called the LDWA Newsletter). These days, of course, all groups have websites, where all the walks are listed, and in recent months one or two group secretaries have contacted me to say they are having difficulty meeting Strider deadlines for group walks submissions. In fact, because of the deadline issue, one group is actually not giving group walks details to Strider, but instead just referring people to its website with its Strider listing. Just about every group refers to its website in its Strider listing anyway.

So I would just like to know how your group would feel if the group walks listings were not included in Strider. This is an important issue, and I can assure you that I would not consider dropping group walks without first consulting with all our group secretaries and group walks secretaries.

And let me assure you that if the group walks listings were not to appear in Strider, the group listings would continue to include relevant contact details, group logos and other key information. Also, the challenge walks listings – compiled for Strider by Events Secretary Tim Glenn – would remain.

So I would very much appreciate it if you would be kind enough to let me know your views about the continued presence of group walks listings in Strider by the end of June, and I appreciate this may well mean you will be consulting with your members.

Please let me have your views by 25th June so that i can calculate your views and ensure Calderdale's views are counted in the decision making about our social walks

Thanking you in anticipation

Karen Nash
