Latest News - Updated Monday 29th November 2021

The next Sunday walk will take place on 12th December at around 10.00 and will be based at the Bulls Head at Arthingworth. As usual please do not arrive before 09.30 as neither the walk desk nor the venue will be ready for you.

We are very sorry to hear of the death of one of our Honorary Life Members, Alwyn (Taff) Davies. Taff was well liked by the club and will be remembered for his participation in our annual visits to Clermont as well as his support of the club for many years. Our thoughts are with his family and freinds.

FORTIETH ANNIVERSARY OF WWC - The attendance list is now closed with 54 members registering their planned attendance at our social event. As previously reported this will take place on the evening of Friday 3rd December at the Old Grammarians Headquarters in Oxford Street starting at 19.30. If you are not sure if you are on the list please email Pete Rickwood and I will let you know. Many of you will know that member Gillian Long makes wonderful greetings cards and she will have a selection of Christmas cards on display at the social event for sale. Thank you and see you all there.

Polo Shirt Update - As you are aware we have organised a limited edition 40th Anniversary polo shirt and the first batch of these are now available from Andrew at walk desks and at the social event. The colour of the shirt is mid blue with a yellow/gold club logo and 40 year dateline which is embroidered rather than printed on the shirt. If you pre-ordered a shirt please collect it at a walk desk soon or we will assume you no longer require it. Cost is £12 as previously stated.

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.

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.
