Whilst pictures make a welcome addition to the walk reports on the blog, it takes an inordinate amount of time to download, save, amend and upload to the website to such an extent that Mrs. H says I spend more time doing reports than I do with her.
So in the cause of marital harmony could I ask that when sending pictures from walks you limit the numbers to around five or six each per walk please?
Whilst we welcome well behaved
dogs on club walks, they must be kept on a short lead. Long leads or flexi leads will no longer be allowed.
My mobile phone is telling me I have received messages but then they don't show up in my messages list. So if you have sent me a text in the last few days and were expecting a reply I haven't been ignoring you but my phone has. I won't have been able to read your message either.
Till the issue is resolved please ring mobile rather than text as landline voicemail is also playing up.

If you are intending to do the walk from Kings Cliffe this coming Thursday please allow around an extra 30 minutes for your journey if you are using the A43 due to horrific delays at Weldon roadworks.
The committee have worked hard over the last few years to try and maintain high standards of discipline when walking on roads with no footpath as per the Highway Code i.e walk in single file facing on oncoming traffic."
Comments have been made that this is not always being adhered to on some walks particularly where new walkers are doing their first walk.
Having walked with other groups I know that some of them are not as concerned as we are about this issue and this may be why new walkers tend to be a bit more relaxed if they too walk with other groups.
Could I ask all walk leaders when new walkers join their walks that they explain our policy in this respect and that other walkers may remind them of the need to stay in single file if requested to do so.
Could I also take this opportunity to remind all walkers of the need to adhere to the requirement to walk in single file if requested to do so and not wander all over the road. I know we all love to chat and it is difficult to do when in single file but you know it makes sense to do so.
