it is my sad duty to report the death of Walter Jones last week.
Walter was a long time member of the club although he hadn't been able to walk in recent years.
His funeral will take place at 10.00 o'clock on Thursday 12th July at St. John the Baptist Church,
Church Walk Corby NN17 1XF.
We have a couple of gaps in the Thursday walk calendar in the near future namely 9th and 26th August.
If you can lead a walk on one of these dates could you please contact Rosemary W on her usual number.
A reminder about member responsibilities when they wish to join a walk.
1) On Thursday walks when you sign the sheet for the next walk take note exactly where the meeting place is. Don't assume it will be a pub. Also note who is leading the walk and their contact details.
2) Always let the leader know that you intend to join a walk. We have had some instances lately where people who should know better just turn up and sometimes at the last minute meaning the whole group is kept waiting. If you haven't booked in and turn up late the group may have left. Don't use the excuse that other groups don't require you to sign in for walks in advance. WE DO.
3) If you can't make a walk that you have booked in for please let the leader know. Don't make the excuse you don't have their contact details. See point 1 above.
Nothing to do with booking in for walks but a request (again) from the chairman,
Please do not ring him, between half past four and half past six.
Apologies for delay in publishing pictures but there were a few technical issues to sort out.
Thanks to Julie S and Ian B for providing pictures. Additional thanks to Ian for help in resolving issues with uploading pictures. Apologies if some are out of sequence.
