Thank you to almost seventy of you who joined us at Rushden Station on Sunday for our first "proper" series walk of the year - that turnout was outstanding! What a great start to the new season and we hope to see many of you again soon.

Our next Sunday walk will also be Rushden-based but this time will take place from the Welcome Inn, on 30th January at around 10.00 onwards. This will be our first time from this venue so please come along and support us and them. As usual please do not arrive before 09.30 as neither the walk desk nor the venue will be ready for you. Also if you have yet to renew your membership we will invite you to do so at the walk desk.

Dates are now available for the committee meetings for 2022 and can be found on the committee page of this website using the link above. As announced at the 2021 AGM these will now be open to all members who wish to attend, observe, or raise an issue for discussion.

After a couple of years delay we will be offering our three distance annual special event for the twentieth time, the "Valley & Views". This event, as before, will be based from Wilbarston Village Hall LE16 8QE and will take place on Sunday 24th April. Routes of approximately 42 kms, 26 kms and 12 kms are offered and walkers and runners join us from all over the country as well as from abroad. As this will be the twentieth Valley & Views we hope you will all come along to enjoy the walks, which we expect will be via Hallaton. Free refreshments and snacks will be provided at each checkpoint on the 42km and 26km routes. Cooked breakfasts and hot sandwiches will be available all day at the village hall for you to enjoy at the start or end of your walk at a reasonable price. Also this year the licensed bar will be open from around 12.30. For the first time "On-line" early booking can be made via SiEntries via this link or you can download, print and post your entry form from here

Please note for those who wish to diarise the 2022 schedules the dates and currently agreed venues for the Wednesday and Sunday events are now available on the website. All Sunday venues for the first quarter of 2022 have now been agreed and published.
