Volunteers wanted to help with the ARUK Explorer Hike on 3rd May 2020

Alzheimers Research UK (ARUK) is organising a sponsored 21-mile walk on Sunday 3rd May and has asked for help:

The ARUK Explorer hike is coming to Cambridge!

Hundreds of people will walk 21 miles of Cambridge’s vibrant city and idyllic Fen countryside on this flat and picturesque route.

Some of your members may already have signed up to take part in the event, but others may  want to be involved because they love walking or running, like meeting new people and/or because they have personal experience of Alzheimer’s Disease or other forms of dementia and want to help in some way.  If so, we’d love to have them volunteer with us to help make this new event a success!

For more information and to apply, please visit:

Stratford upon Avon budget weekend: Friday 6th to Sunday 8th March 2020 (2 nights)

We are returning to Stratford upon Avon in March 2020 for a week’s walking in the northern Cotswolds. With a base at the Premier Inn Central (or similar – bookings are up to you), the plan is to use a local bus on Saturday to access the Avon Way from Alcester. On Sunday we propose to walk from NT Hidcote Manor. Hopefully we can fit in a visit to the famous RSC Theatre as well. Please book your own accommodation and let Jill know.

Beryl Smart – funeral details

Long-term members of the Club will be very sad to learn that Beryl Fuller died on 12th January. For many years Beryl was a very keen walker, both locally and also on our trips away. The funeral will be at 2.00pm on Monday 27th January at Coton Church, in the village where Beryl lived for many years.
