July 2022 Update


Welcome to the July update. As you are all probably aware by now there are a couple of role changes within the Committee following this year’s AGM.

Congratulations to Hilary Magnall who is our new Chair and welcome to Ray Orman who has taken on Hilary’s previous role as Group Secretary.

Following this change can walk leaders please send the walks registers to Ray in future. Email norfolkandsuffolk@ldwa.org.uk

The Big Event is nearly upon us - Norfolk & Suffolk’s 50th Celebration Boat Trip

Just to remind you that in addition to the boat trip there is a short 8(ish) mile walk in the morning starting from Suffolk Food Hall.

Address - Wherstead, Ipswich, IP9 2AB. From Ipswich take the B1456 towards Shotley, under the Orwell Bridge and the Food Hall can be seen on the right.

Please park at the rear overflow car park after 9am for a 9.30am start time. The walk will need to start promptly to allow enough time to finish the walk and head over to the Quay for the boat trip.

Please keep an eye on the website for up to date details. Any queries please contact myself or Hilary Magnall at chair.norfolkandsuffolk@ldwa.org.uk

In keeping with the 50th Anniversary celebrations a few of us participated in the Big Walk weekend. Our 50 km walk was lead by Michael and timed perfectly with the cooler weather on Saturday following the heat wave last week! Please check out the pictures on the walks database.
