Sad to record……

It is sad to record the recent death of long-standing Club member Alan Fakes, aged 99. Leading walks for the CRC  was an important part of Alan’s life at one time. He was very pleased when he was made a life member and liked to receive the newsletter.

The funeral will be at Cambridge City Crematorium, East Chapel, on Friday, 10th October, 2014, at 2.30pm.

Donations, if desired, to Willingham Medical Practice, may be left on the day or sent c/o Willingham Funeral Service, Berrycroft, Willingham, Cambs, CB24 5JX

Summer 2015 – Budget walking trip to Keighley, Yorkshire, 8th to 15th August

Next summer the Club has arranged a budget walking trip to the self-catering Currer Laithe Farm, just outside Keighley, close to Hebden Bridge and 4 miles from Bronte land at Haworth. We have booked the farm and an adjoining cottage which can sleep up to 18 – mainly in twin-bedded and one three-bedded rooms. (Sorry – the two doubles have already been snapped up). We have booked a week at this old-fashioned farm (which is owned by the National Trust) – just see the rave reviews on Trip Advisor. It’s a snip at £100 each for the week for beds; there are also 4 bunks which are available at £80 for the week. There is an excellent pub within half a mile.

Some walks will be possible from the door, but others are a short drive away.

Please contact Jill if interested.

Club AGM on Saturday 22nd November – Speaker on Wimpole Hall confirmed

Following the Club’s formal business at its AGM on Saturday 22nd November we will welcome a speaker from the National Trust. Veronica Bennett will give a talk on Wimpole Hall. All our walking groups use Wimpole Hall as a base for rambles – and most make use of the cafe or restaurant. But how many of us know much about the Hall and the adjoining estate? This is your opportunity to learn more. Please do come along and support us. The AGM will be held at the Friends Meeting House on Hartington Grove, Cambridge – Cherry Hinton Road end, starting at 2.30pm. There is parking on-site.
