Hello, welcome to the January to March programme of events.
Following the funeral of Dave Tomkins we have received the following message from Rita Tomkins.
At our recent AGM we decided that this year we would raise money for Keech Hospice Care where Dave spent some of his last few days.
Welcome to the new members of the committee and many thanks to the retiring members for all their efforts over the last few years.
Also many thanks to the new walk leaders (and returning older leaders) who have helped to make this such a vibrant and diverse programme.
In March we are off to Petra in Jordan, unfortunately with 15 people going, this trip is now pretty nearly full. We were going to go last year and so many people had already expressed an interest.
In February we are off to Tanners Hatch, a classic, basic hostel set in the Surrey woods near Leatherhead, this trip is still booking. Further ahead Don will be running an Easter trip to the Lake District at the very beginning of the next programme so if you want to go you will need to think about that soon.
This is my 4th year as Chair and I am finding it a little difficult to think of interesting or uplifting things to say in these ramblings. The front page of the programme is in part intended to be an introduction to what we do and an encouragement to new members to join. For the next programme would one of our newer members like to write a small piece entitled “A new members introduction to the boggies….” or something similar. Prize for the best entry is to see it printed on the front of the next programme.
