We have organised our first walk of 2021, on 13th August. Barring a total lock down we absolutely will not be cancelling this one! All meet at the Community Hall Stutton at 7pm for an evening walk to Alton Water or for those who prefer a shorter walk around the local footpaths of Stutton. Tea, Coffee and Cakes will be served in the hall at the end of the walk. We just can’t wait to see you all. We will also be taking part in a fundraising walk on September 12th but full details of this walk hosted by one of our generous supporters who has pledged a £5 donation for every dog taking part will appear shortly.
Unfortunately due to Governments delay in relaxing restrictions we are having to cancel the June 27th walk.Disappointed doesn’t come close! We are so sorry, we were really looking forward to seeing you all.We will organise an evening walk in July assuming all restrictions are lifted by then.
Change of Venue. Due to the Orwell Challenge being organised on the same day as our walk we have had to change the venue. We will now be meeting at Shotley Marina, opposite the Shipwreck Bar and Restaurant IP9 1QJ. The duration of the walk which will take in stunning views of the river and surrounding countryside will be approximately 1 hour depending how much chatting and catching up with one another we do along the way. We are so looking forward to seeing you all.
Our first walk, assuming the lifting of restrictions goes according to Government plans will take place at Orwell Country Park. Bridge Wood car IP10 0JS on Sunday 27th June at 11am The walk will last just over an hour, maybe longer as we will all be catching up with one another and chatting along the way. We can’t wait to see you all.
Despite the fact that everyone who attended our last walk at Shotley in August acted sensibly and within the then government Covid – 19 guidelines we are forced to cancel our September walk at Hollesley because we cannot find a way around the 6 people rule.We are so sorry to all who had intended to come along but the last thing we would want apart from anybody falling ill is for anybody to face a fine.Disappointed doesn’t come close but we will organise another walk just as soon as we are legally allowed. In the meantime we send good wishes to you all and thank you for the fantastic support you all give us.
