‘Brightwater’ weekend.

Dear all,

Bill’s recent newsletter will have informed you of our involvement with Brightwater landscapes and our  walks programme for their ‘launch weekend’ is attached. We invite some of our members to  volunteer as leaders or backmarkers for the walks and for everyone to turn out on at least one of the walks to meet members of the public whom we hope to attract during the weekend.

Although leaders appeared to have been assigned, this is not set in stone, so any prospective volunteer leaders and backmarkers interested in one or more of the walks should contact the designated leader by phone. All of the walks have been  reconnoitred and mapped. Details available.

We hope that our club members will be supportive of the committee and their involvement with Brightwater’s worthwhile efforts to improve the Skerne and surrounding area.

Swale Way Walks postponed for now.

Regretfully, we will have to postpone the mid week ‘Oldies’ walks including the Swale Way, for the time being, as Dr. Ian Bagshaw is indisposed.

He hopes to lead these walks again as soon as he is able and we will let you know when that is likely to be.

Marg has now organised the next 2 walks on 7/03 and 21/03.

See website programme for details.
