February 2024

Dear All,

Welcome to  your  February update. There are just a couple of things to  remind you about at  the moment - a 'figure of eight' social  walk  this coming Sunday, and our AGM and walk  the following Saturday.

After that,  there is a gap  in our social  walks calendar until we will be walking to  The Orient with  Peter T. on  2nd March.  Lizzie would love to  hear from anyone who could put on a pop-up  weekend or  mid-week walk in the meantime. All the information you need is here: Essex & Herts LDWA - Available Walks Dates 2024
