June 2023 Update

Welcome to the June update and hopefully Summer 2023!

With the holiday period now upon us you may notice that the group walks tend to tail off a bit as leaders and in fact walkers are otherwise engaged with summer activities.

The annual 100 is now very fast approaching (this weekend)  and a few of us from the group are now eagerly packing and repacking our rucksacks to try and lose just a little bit more weight from them….every ounce counts! My crystalised ginger has just arrived which Chelle swears helps to ward off the sickness…I think I am going to need something much stronger to get me round!

A huge congratulations to our Marshals Chelle, Michael and Malcolm who completed it earlier this month in very muddy conditions.

For those of you looking to escape on a walk over the summer we still have a healthy number of social walks on the schedule for the next couple of months:

It would be good to bolster the number of walks on this schedule with some more social walks slotted in. I would therefore appreciate walk leaders coming forward to help plug the gaps.
