Anyone want some gaiters?
One of our members has a pair of black, nylony, Luckstone gaiters that they cannot use as they are too big and they wonder if someone would like them. She's giving them away to anyone who could get use out of them. She suggests they are a large size which is why they are of no use to her.
If you are interested please contact the Chairman via his usual number.

Saturday 25th March 2017 Walk Report.
Looking at the pictures below you could belieive that Spring had finally sprung as the group made it way from the Exeter Arms at Barrowden although it was cool at at first but it turned into a lovely day.
The walk was around 6 miles and took in part of Wakerley, returning for lunch at the Exeter Arms.
Thanks to Richard for organising and leading the walk and to Julie for back marking. Thanks also to Carna for the lovely pictures
Slightly soft going?
Does rambling get any better than this

No holding them when their nose is to the stable door!

Thursday 23rd March 2017 Walk Report
24 of us set off from the Red Lion at Warmington on a bright and breezy Spring day for a six mile walk across mostly field edge paths with a little bit of road walking and just one or two muddy fields. After a climb up a gentle slope about a mile from the village we were rewarded with brillints views back across to where Fotheringhay church could be seen in the distance.
During our "banana break" we were diverted by seeing a single roe deer then a separate group of five or six was seen.
At this stage the wind was more wintry than springlike but the sun shone continuously.
We returned to the Red Lion for a well deserved lunch.
Thanks to Sue and Jem for organising and leading an excellent walk.

80th Anniversary Walk 11th march 2017.
The celebrations for the club’s 80th birthday
started on the morning of the 11th March with a walk around Hills
and Dales. The day was dry and mild and
a group of 28 members set off through this quarry area towards Twywell. On the way a dog attached itself to us and
seemed that we were more interesting than its owner who was some distance away
and calling to the dog. Eventually after
much persuasion dog and owner were reunited.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
We arrived at The Olde Friar in Twywell who were expecting
us for coffee. A nice surprise and
lovely to be able to sit outside the pub and chat for a while. There was a lot of talk and excitement about
the forthcoming evening celebration
The return journey passed through the edges of some slightly
muddy fields and we bumped into Anne, our chairman’s wife, who was out walking
the dog (obviously she had left her
husband at home presumable doing some housework!)
A big thank you goes to Gloria and Linda for leading the
walk and organising the coffee break.
Thanks to Carna for the picture of the happy band at the Old Friar.
