I do hope you all had a very happy Christmas and the New Year brings you good health and happiness.
As we enter 2020, I am looking forward to lots of good walking and the enjoyment of our social activities.
At our AGM in October, the Committee were re-elected and the Officers all retained their titles.
Our Walks Programme is looking a little empty in places so if you have some spare time to lead a walk, please come forward. We are always ready to welcome and help new Walk Leaders.
Our annual lunches are getting booked up fast so please do have a look at our website for all the details. We are goijng to the Crown & Cushion at Minley, in the Mead Hall on Wednesday 26th February and Sunday 1st March. There will be a walk beforehand on both dates and for those of you who would like to come along just for the lunch, please arrive by 12. We have a very varied menu on offer which you can order from. I do hope as many of our non-walking members will attend even if just to catch up with friends.
We are busy arranging our next function which is an evening of Skittles at a newly found venue in Binfield. Do watch the website for details.
Also, we have a Walk Leader’s BBQ this year as a “thank you” for all the time and efforts they spend on our behalf. I am in the throes of arranging this for June at a local pub in Finchampstead.
Some of our members are busy walking the Capital Ring, the first leg of which was in January, led by Steve Wells. I understand it was a long day but thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended. Well done to Pam Palmer for organising this event.
Countryfile comes to Windsor this year and our Area Publicity Officer, Jason Owen, is in charge of the organisation. He will be looking for volunteers to help out with the manning of our stall. Brian Poulton, our Publicity Officer and I will be putting our names forward. The dates are 20th – 23rd August.
