Latest News - Updated Tuesday 19th October 2021

The next Sunday walk will take place on 31st October at around 10.00 and will be based at the White Hart in Hackleton. As usual please do not arrive before 09.30 as neither the walk desk nor the venue will be ready for you.

Please note for those who wish to diarise next years schedule the dates for the Wednesday and Sunday events are now available on the website. Note the Valley and Views event is planned for 2022, also as previously reported we have reduced the number of coach trips from four to three.

Further to the above please note the June coach trip has been pushed back two weeks due to the 2022 bank holiday changes due to the Diamond Jubilee.

FORTIETH ANNIVERSARY OF WWC - As previously reported and announced at the AGM we are planning a "members only" social get together on the evening of Friday 3rd December. This will take place in the function room at the Old Grammarians Headquarters in Oxford Street starting at 19.30. As stated it will be a members only event, will include a buffet and will be free of charge. It is not intended to organise any quizzes, games etc as it is intended as a social event for members to mix and mingle with one another after a couple of years where such activities have been difficult. Whilst being free, no tickets will be issued but we request you register your name if you plan to attend so we can plan the catering numbers with the OGs, Please register by email or by Facebook message to Peter Rickwood, or register at any walk desk. Also please mention at your registration if you have any dietary requirements or allergies. Thank you and see you there. If you have any WWC memorabilia from earlier days in the life of the club please let us know so we can perhaps put these on show at the event; also please feel free to bring any photos of yourself from "back in the day"!!

As you are aware we have also organised a limited edition 40th Anniversary polo shirt and the first batch of these have been ordered and sho8uld be available soon, Price will be £12 each. Subject to demand we will re-order later in the year. The colour of the shirt will be mid blue with a yellow/gold club logo and 40 year dateline which will be embroidered rather than printed on the shirt.

2022 Valley and Views event - Important Update. Contrary to the announcement at the AGM and the information provided in the recent edition of the Waendeller the above event will take place on Sunday 24th April, NOT on the 10th as previously advised, This is due to the non availability of Wilbarston Village Hall on the original date. Apologies for the confusion. Please be aware that this will be the twentieth Valley and Views event and is likely to be our last. We also plan to organise sew on badges marking the twentieth Valley and Views - more details to follow.

A reminder that almost all currently paid up members will need to renew their subscriptions at the end of 2021. Cost remains at £4 for the whole of 2022 and you can renew at any time. From the beginning of 2022 we will be asking you to pay your renewal at your first walk if you have not already renewed so why not do it this year at a walk and get it out of the way.
