Christmas Lunch and Walk Reminder.

Just a brief reminder that 29th November is deadline for getting payment and menu choices back to Sue C  for Christmas lunch on Saturday 8th December.
Also remember you need to let Sue know if you are doing walk as well as lunch.

Please support the Saturday 10th November Walk

David and Sarah S are leading a figure of eight walk from the Bell at Gumley on Saturday the 10th of November. The walk is a figure of eight with the morning section being 5.5 miles and the afternoon part around 3.5 miles with lunch at the Bell after the a.m. section.

Given the recent poor support for some recent Saturday walks and that some of the Saturday stalwarts will not be able to do the walk could I ask that you lend your support to this walk.
There is no need to do both sections so if you only want to do the a.m. or p.m parts that is fine.

The other reason for asking for support is that  the pub have agreed to open at 09.30hrs to allow those taking part to order lunch and it would be a shame if only a handful of people turned up to repay their kindness in opening up specially early.

Gumley is in an attractive part of the world close to Foxton Locks so come on give it a go.

If you fancy it please contact David and Sarah on 01536 510425 / 07876152840 to book in.

New walk cards and newsletter.

The Winter walk cards and newsletters are now available. I will take them to the walk at Rushden on Thursday 1st November. 
Any help with distribution would be most appreciated and would reduce the club's postage bill.

Mobile Phone NUmbers.

The subject of walk leaders providing mobile numbers has again been raised following a destinational faux pas on a recent walk when two members were going to be late and wanted to advise the leaders.

Whilst this is exremely desirable it also cuts both ways.

If when you are signing up for a walk and give your mobile number as well as your landline this enables the leader to contact you on the day with any changes to walk details.
Also if you have not turned up for the start time it allows the leader to contact you to see what is happening and delay the start of the walk if deemed necessary.

I am aware some people are not keen on disclosing their mobile numbers but it really does improve communication on walk days.
