SHIRLEY'S RAMBLINGS

A personal blog from the group's chairman, Shirley Poulton

September 2019


 Well! What a summer we have had. The glorious countryside we have around us has been an absolute pleasure to walk in and very often it is with the added bonus of beautiful flowers.





 









Well! What a summer we have had. The glorious countryside we have around us has been an absolute pleasure to walk in and very often it is with the added bonus of beautiful flowers.

















The walks programme continues to run smoothly and we have also had the pleasure of two Coach Trips. Douglas Buchanan took us to the Cotswolds in June



























and Brian Poulton organised the Bluebell Line trip in September.


Both were very well supported with numbers of attendees in the 50’s. The weather was kind to us on both days. Thank you to the organisers – you did a splendid job and from the many “thank you’s” I received from members, both events were very much appreciated.


The walks programme could do with more Walk Leaders so please if you would be willing to “give it a go” do get in touch with me. It really is quite easy and it would enable our current dedicated walk leaders time to enjoy “just walking and talking”.


In August the programme saw the last Tuesday walk that Jackie Hobbs was leading. I went along and presented Jackie with a bouquet of flowers and a card thanking her for her contribution to the group over the last 12 years.



















She was, unfortunately, unable to finish the walk so Phil Caunt took over.Thank you Phil.  Various members have said they will continue to lead those walks in place of Jackie.


The annual T.party in August was a relaxed event with some members doing the Wellington College tour of the grounds with Douglas and others just enjoying the tea and meeting up with friends.























Our Ceilidh on the 28th September is the next social event. Please come along and support us and bring your dancing shoes with you. A buffet supper will be provided but please bring your own liquid refreshment and glasses. The registration and times for this can be found on our website.


Our AGM is fast approaching. It is on 26th October at St.Michael’s Pastoral Centre, Sandhurst.. Registration and all details are to be found on the website. Please come along and support your group Committee. They are a great bunch and work extremely hard on our behalf. They are all up for re-election so if you appreciate their efforts, come along and give your vote.


If there is anything in our Walks/Social Programme that you feel we should be addressing, please do talk to any member of the Committee or e-mail me. Suggestions are always very welcome.


The Saturday morning walks are still very popular and attract a good number of people. Two walks are now on offer: One of 2 miles and the other 3. We have a rota of walk leaders who take it in turns to lead the walks. Thank you for your dedication and support.


HAPPY WALKING












Happy walking!
