Please see the below message received from Karen regarding her walk on Saturday 1st December.
I did Saturdays walk today (Wednesday 28th), rather damp and blustery, good news there was surprisingly little mud. Some of the stiles were a bit slippery though.
If anyone fancies a shorter walk it is 2 miles to Chawton where there is a coffee shop (shut today though) and a pub which is open all day. So a 4 mile round trip. There is one stile just before Chawton and the walking is nice and easy.
Post Christmas Walk and Lunch to the Queen, Dummer
I know it is a little early to be thinking about after Christmas, but looking ahead I realise we need to get organised for our traditional post Christmas walk to the Queen at Dummer on Thursday 27th December. This walk tends to run itself and we don’t usually have an official leader, but I am happy to co-ordinate the lunch orders. I have booked a table for 1.15pm for ten people at this stage but numbers can be adjusted as necessary.
Could you please let me know by Friday 23rd November if you intend to come on this walk and what you would like to order to eat if you are staying for lunch. The menu can be found on the Queen website thequeeninndummer.com/menu/main-course/
Everyone is welcome to join us, including any family/friends you may have staying with you. Some may not wish to walk but would just join us for lunch, others walk to the pub and organise a lift home, whilst some energetic people walk both ways! It is a very flexible and enjoyable occasion and good for getting out in the fresh air and walking off some of the excesses of the previous two days!
We will leave the school lay-by at the later than usual start time of 11a.m.
I look forward to hearing from you and hope we get our usual good turn out.
Advanced Notice of A.G.M. and Request for New Committee Members.
At the request of the current committee I am writing to give you advanced notice that our A.G.M. will be held on Monday 11th February 2019 at St. Leonard’s centre.
Those of you who were at the last A.G.M. may remember that our current Chairperson, Jonathan Rouse gave notice that he will be standing down from the role of Chairperson after having served in this capacity for five years. We will therefore be looking for a new chairperson next year and so I am writing to ask you all to consider putting your name forward. The position is not an onerous one. It simply needs someone willing to chair our small committee who hold meetings three or four times a year in committee member’s houses. Meetings usually take between one and two hours and the business is very straightforward. As a committee we also have a BBQ after our August meeting which is a great social occasion when spouses are also invited.
It would also be much appreciated if we could have some more members willing to be on the committee. The future of Oakley Ramblers Club very much depends on its members being willing to take a small part in its organisation. So please give this some serious consideration and let me or one of the committee know if you are prepared to stand in either capacity.
We look forward to hearing from lots of volunteers!
