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.
