June 2022 Update


Welcome to the monthly walks update.

May has been very successful starting with all four of our 100 marshals completing the Trans Pennine 100 over the Bank Holiday Weekend. By all accounts it was a very tough route. Can’t wait for the main event!    

Next came the Rodent Wriggle which proved to be a fabulous event with wonderful weather, a lot of positive feedback from the walkers and calls for it to be held again next year….watch this space! 

In addition to the challenge events we have had a full schedule of social walks which have been enjoyed by many. Thank you to all involved.

We finish off May with the AGM and walk on Sunday 29th May

A circular walk via Eye airfield, Thrandeston, Mellis, Thornham Walks, Stoke Ash and Thorndon.
AGM to take place at Thornham Walks at 12.30 (9 miles into the walk).

Please park at Eye Cross Street car park IP23 7AB (Behind Queens Head Public House)

We look forward to welcoming all those that can make it.
