|We are aware that the Ramblers Association are planning to restart walks shortly for small groups of up to six walkers and other organisations are also looking into doing so. |
As there is still much uncertainty over the likely effects of the continuing epidemic crisis for us and taking into account the government restrictions on the size of groups that can meet together, we feel that it is too early to recommence club walks at present. I know you will be disappointed in this decision, but we do have your best interests at heart. When we can meet safely in larger groups, that is the time to restart and we can then get back to enjoying walking as a club.
We plan to hold a committee meeting at the end of July to review the position, when we hope to have some better news.
The planned AGM and social evening has, like a lot of other events, been cancelled, due to COVID-19.
We hope to reinstate the event later in the year, when the situation improves.
Derek Jones, who runs these NNAS acredited courses, has recently contacted the club about the next round of courses he plans to run:
“I am starting a list of people interested in the next set of courses. How it works is when there are about 20 names on the list an email is sent to everyone asking what days and dates they cannot attend. The courses (3 x 4 hour sessions) are then arranged to suit the responses and are at levels one or two.”
Several club members have attended these courses in the past, and found them both enjoyable and of great value. If you would like to be added to Derek’s list for his next course, or want further information, please contact the club via our ‘Contact us’ page, and we will pass on your email to Derek.
Or contact him directly via email@example.com .
Whilst a group of Pathfinders members were walking in Snowdonia, on our recent autumn weekend break, we met a couple of fellow walkers, and stopped for a chat. They told us about a new trail, which they had had some part in formulating, called the North Wales Pilgrim’s Way. They have since sent us some leaflets, detailing what looks like a very attractive trail.
It runs from Holywell, in Denbighshire, along the north coast, down the Lleyn peninsula, finishing at Bardsey Island, a distance of 135 miles. Stamps can be collected for your ‘passport’ along the way.
