Group Leader's News May 2021

Group Leader's News May 2021

Following a committee meeting and our first (and hopefully last!) Zoom AGM on 7 May, we have decided to return to our standard 'face to face' indoor meetings at 'The Settlement' and field trips by coach, from the start of our 2021-22 season in September. Obviously the Covid-19 pandemic is still not over and we may have to change our plans (we have retained our 'Zoom Pro' licence, just in case), but we are hopeful that we can return to 'normality' after an 18 month gap. We will be planning a programme of indoor and outdoor meetings through the summer and these will be publicised on our 'events' page and our Facebook page, as soon as they have been finalised.

Our spring walks programme is progressing well, despite the very 'unseasonal' (that's a polite way of expressing it) weather. I'll summarise what we've seen in the 'Trip Reports' page, once the programme is complete. Our remaining meetings (see the Events page) are free and open to all - no booking required. Come along and join us!
