Weekend trip to Dover, Friday 27th to Sunday 29th January 2023 (2 nights)

The first walking trip away from Cambridge in 2023 will be based in Dover, with bookings suggested at the Dover (St James Centre) Travelodge, close to Dover Castle and the famous ‘White Cliffs’ walk. The hotel has a restaurant. The dates suggested are Friday 27th and Saturday 28th January, which should enable us to organise walks on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday. There is some parking at the hotel  – but not cheap; however it should be possible to find on-street parking or you can travel by train. The English coast path runs close by and we should be able to explore the nearby Downs, both east towards Deal and west, towards Folkestone. A walks guaranteed, but offers of shorter walks are very welcome. Please book your own accommodation and let Jill know that you are coming, (secretary@cambridgeramblingclub.com).

Sad news – John Andrews

It is very sad to let CRC members know of the recent death of John Andrews,  a long-standing member of the Cambridge Rambling Club who contributed a great deal to it over the years, especially with the Sunday Bs and Cs.  Over the past few years John was part of an informal group of older CRC ramblers,  named the Amblers. John helped organise the much-appreciated annual New Year’s lunch for the Sunday B & C groups.  John will be greatly missed.

John’s funeral was held on Friday 22nd July at St Mary’s Church Great Shelford. Our grateful thanks to Dieter for representing John’s many friends in the CRC and recording how much John meant to so many of us.
