The Government has announced that Cambridgeshire, together with all adjoining Counties, will be covered by Tier 4 Covid restrictions from 26th December. This means that no Club walks can be organised for the forseeable future. It also means that even informal walks are very restricted; you can meet one other person from another household in an open public space, if you are both alone. ‘Support bubbles’ are also still allowed. People should not leave Tier 4 areas.
Our members know well the great value to both physical and mental health provided by outdoor exercise – so we encourage you to keep active through what is likely to be a long winter. We will update you when restrictions ease.
The Club will be returning to the magnificent Yorkshire Dales in early August 2021, based in Masham, near Leyburn – the home of two breweries! We have booked three properties and there are a few vacancies, following publicity in the last Club newsletter. Two houses have been reserved for Friday 6th – 13th August and one has been booked for Saturday 7th to 14th. In order to restrict numbers to a maximum of 6 per property we are offering all ‘singles’ sole occupancy of a room. Consequently prices are a little higher than on other budget trips, but are still excellent value at £250 per head for the week. A deposit of £50 is required, with the balance payable by early June 2021. Please contact Jill if you are interested – and do let her know if you book independently.
It is very sad to report the deaths of Yvonne Graves and Margaret Gates, two long-standing members of this Club. Margaret’s daughter has asked us to let friends know that her funeral is on Monday 2nd November at 1.00pm at St Andrew’s Church Chesterton.
