Barry's Blather - This week with London LDWA - Second Attempt

NOTICES

1)  We have 3 new associate members to welcome this week: Jasmine Gideon,  Caroline Hargreaves and Chris Smith.  We look forward to meeting you on a social walk in the near future.

2) Your help is needed, the NEC is looking for volunteers to work with them. So if you would like to give a bit of your time for the association, read the detailed information here and contact the relevant person.

3)  Your guess is as good as mine about what regulations will be introduced in the near future which may impact on us as a group.  Definitely one of my New Year resolutions is to get out as much as possible and we have a nice range of walks in January for you to choose from. 

4) The Blather is taking a rest next week and will be back in the first week of 2022.  I take this opportunity on behalf of the Committee to wish you a joyful and peaceful Christmas holiday and lovely (and normal) 2022.
