Usually at this time of year, a Schedule for the next Spring Walking Festival would be ready to go to the printers, and our volunteers would be planning their recces. We would all be looking forward to the longer days of Spring, and the chance to meet up for some interesting and challenging walks. This year of course is very different, with the Covid restrictions continuing to affect our ability to meet.

We are intending nevertheless to hold a Festival in the Spring, even if it has to be a "virtual" one. We are monitoring developments, and hope to have a programme of activities that will allow us to walk in whichever ways we can in April and May. If circumstances allow, we are hoping to have arrangements for walks that can be undertaken together, even if they have to be at the last minute. We will not be able to offer our usual comprehensive programme, but we hope to be as flexible as possible.

Keep watching our news updates, to see what we are planning!
