November 2023 Update

Welcome to the November update. I am so pleased to see that that the social walks have picked up again now that summer is over.

Thank you to all the walk leaders that responded to my plea. The November and December schedule has now filled up nicely. It is great to see and catch up with everybody again after the summer break and hopefully we can keep the momentum going over the coming winter months.

Remember pop up walks can be put on very last minute so please ensure you check the website regularly. It is also recommended that you register with our Whatsapp group. Anybody who would like adding to the group please contact either myself or our secretary Ray Orman

Whilst on the subject of WhatsApp we have drawn up some guidelines for use of the group to ensure that it remains and asset and not a nuisance. They can be found on the following link Norfolk & Suffolk LDWA - Norfolk & Suffolk Group WhatsApp
