Latest News - Updated Tuesday 28th November 2023

Facebook Update. As many of you will be aware we have a Facebook presence including a "Page" which is like our shop window and general information provider, and a "Group" which is designed for chat between us all, sharing photos and posts etc. Our "Group" to date has always been offered as a "Public" rather than "Private" group meaning that anybody can post to it. Due to some recent "rogue" postings of a rather adult nature we are reviewing whether we should make the group "Private". This would limit posting ability to "Members" of which nearly 200 of you out there already are. Anyone can become a member very simply but this would be electronically approved by one of our administrators, normally in less than 24 hours. It is interesting to note that many organisations similar to ourselves have their Facebook groups set up as "Private". Watch this space for developments.

Booking List Latest News.  There are still tickets available for our December 10th coach trip ending in London, and also for our Pre-Christmas social event on Friday 15th December at the Wellingborough Old Grammarians HQ as usual. Please see below for further information and contact us ASAP if you would like to join us for either or both of these regular seasonal events.

Membership Subscriptions. Annual membership expires at the end of December 2023. Clearly we will ask all participants to pay their 2024 subscriptions (still only £4 per year) at the first walk of 2024 but you may wish to get ahead of the game and renew before then at any walk desk.

Coach Trip News. Our next walking event will be our regular pre-Christmas London-based coach trip which will take place on 10th December. The booking list for this walk is still open with a few spaces available. If you wish to join us please contact us as soon as possible via the usual electronic channels of Facebook or the website, or you can email Pete directly.

Social Event News. We will again be organising a pre-Christmas members get together on Friday 15th December 2023 which will again take place at the Old Grammarians headquarters function room starting at 19.30. We will be offering a quiz and raffle at the event as well as a buffet. The booking list for this event  is being managed by the organisers Paul and Julie and again there are still a few tickets left. Come along and enjoy a social evening with fellow members and have a chat with us all. Cost of tickets will be £10 including the buffet. Please advise us of any dietary requirements at the time of booking.  

Walk Leaders still required. We have now managed to fill all the outstanding 2023 events. However we still need to extend our group of volunteers to organise a walk or two in 2024. If you would like to take this on it would be appreciated. For more details please contact our walk co-ordinator Graham Baker using the contact details on the committee page of this website.

Save the Date - 2024 AGM. The 2024 Annual General Meeting will take place on Thursday 13th June at the Old Grammarians HQ at 19.30 as usual. More details will follow early next year.
