Committee meeting synopsis
Meeting date: 9 January, 2017
Our Committee meeting followed the traditional Janus pattern of looking
back and forward.
We looked back over the six months since our formal recognition, and
were pleased to realise that we had generated over £250 worth of funds,
run five public walks, set up a website, started to build a following of
walkers, undertaken many hours of path clearance and generally made
something of an impact around the town. As part of our continuing
accreditation, we are required to submit an annual return to the central
Walkers are Welcome organisation, and we approved that at our meeting.
We also thought it would be good to make that information available to
anyone else interested, so you will now find our
website. We hope you enjoy reading it - please do pass it on to anyone
else you think might be interested.
Our Bolo Rei walk clearly went down well (as did the Bolo Rei!) - thanks
for the kind comments from a number of those taking part. Although our
purpose goes much wider than running walks, these are also very much a
part of our activity, so we spent some time planning further events for
2017. All are subject to possible change at this early stage, but
current plans are
- a ‘recce’ walk on 15 February: this is planned to check out a
planned Walk 7 (see Published Walks page for
the other 6), using the bus out to North Elmham and walking back.
Although a functional walk, you are also welcome to join us and give
first hand comment on the walk and our instructions for it
- a Simnel Cake Walk on Easter Saturday 15 April, route to be
- a family/children Scavenger Walk on Easter Monday, based around The
- further walks, all with a difference, for the later public holidays
(May Day, Spring Bank Holiday, Late Summer Bank Holiday and Christmas
and the New Year - wow, another year has gone by!
- likely participation in the Norfolk County Council Walking Festival,
if this is again held in autumn half term (23-27 October)
