A Letter from our Chairman

Hi everyone, I must have been tempting providence when I wrote in the September Newsletter last year, “Heat and humidity did slow the pace of some of our walks and occasionally took its toll on individuals. It was a salutary reminder of some golden rules: Carry sufficient water; Take a small snack to keep up the energy levels and don’t be embarrassed to miss out the afternoon session on a figure of 8 walk if you are feeling drained”.      See full story...

Membership Cards

These are being designed and printed now and we hope to let you have them very soon. The intention is that you will be able to use the card for discounts in various ‘outdoor’ type stores and you will receive a new card annually.      See full story...

Tiverton Canal Horse Drawn Barge Trip

This event had to be cancelled because of poor weather in Sept 2018 but has now been rescheduled for Sunday 8 September. We will meet at the canal basin (directions on separate sheet) at 10 am for a very pleasant 4.8 mile walk with views (there is a hill) and along the canal.      See full story...

Other Social Events

The quiz walks are proving popular and fun has been had in solving the clues in teams, usually with a good lunch to follow. More villages / towns are being researched and planned – Cerne Abbas, Sherborne and Glastonbury are all available and we feel now that enough time has lapsed since the Dorchester one to repeat this.      See full story...

A Note from our Chairman - January 2019

Hi everyone, So, another New Year and by the way subs are due if you have not already crossed the palm of the Treasurer with silver. If you have made any New Year resolutions, how are they faring? I have restricted myself to two this time and I am backing myself not to break either.      See full story...
