We’re twenty five years old this year, we’ve been walking for 25 years!
So a good time for a celebration. That’s what this year will be about, celebrating!
We started off by launching our recipe book, that’s full of photos showing where we like to walk and the diversity of our walks. Members contributed their favourite recipes and I’ve heard people on walks saying they had tried this and that recipe and it was worth cooking.
We’re holding a walking festival in May, from 16th May to the 20th and there will be some of our favourite walks during that time. This will be advertised in the Walk magazine and on The Ramblers website, so hopefully we’ll have walkers from other groups walking with us. I do hope you’ll offer us a walk to lead during those dates. There will be an anniversary walk in June with various walks on the Lickey Hills ending at the Rose and Crown for a buffet. And to finish the year a TWENTY FIVE walk. That will be along the Stratford canal and you decide how far you walk. 25 miles, 25 kilometres or five friends walking five miles each together, any combination of 25 you want. We’ll all end up at the Kings Norton playing fields to rapturous applause, and a drink and a piece of cake. (You can tell from our recipe book we’re good at making cakes as well as walking.) So it’s going to be a good year.
Ted has printed our programme for a second time, and it looks even better than ever. If you want a programme and you’re not receiving one, do tell Janet on firstname.lastname@example.org.
I do hope you’re all intending to go to the Area AGM in Sutton Coldfield at the end of
January. Saturday the 27th to be exact. Our own Peter Rookes is the Ramblers Trustee who will be giving the talk this year, we do need to cheer and support him there. Janet will be sending out all the details shortly.
But to go back to celebrations, I do hope you had a good Christmas and we all have a happy and healthy 2018
