Historic Walks 1
|Convenor: Netta Swallow, Full|
|Date: 4th Monday of the month|
|Time: Varies - see below|
|Venue: Varies - see below|
Historic Walks in the Waveney and Blyth Valley and further afield (limited number of 15). We have to limit numbers so that members on the walk can hear the leader as the walk progresses. For similar reasons we do not allow members to be accompanied by dogs.
This, the original group, is now called HISTORIC WALKS 1. Due to a recent influx of new members - WELCOME TO YOU ALL- the group is now once again FULL. If you wish to join this group. please contact Netta using the bird-link to the right and we will put you on our waiting list.
There are now THREE Historic Walks groups - Historic Walks 1,2 and 3.
New people wishing to join any of the three Historic Walks groups should contact them via their Group Pages on this website. Please note that the groups each operate on different days .
PROGRAMME FOR 2020
CANCELLATION OF HISTORIC WALKS UP UNTIL AND INCLUDING AUGUST 2020 - MESSAGE FROM OUR CONVENOR, NETTA SWALLOW
First an update – I have cancelled all walks up to August 2020. Most of the walk leaders involved have agreed to roll over their walks to same time 2021. This includes our day visit planned for May to the replica Viking ship and Tide Mill in Woodbridge
I will type up all the walks we have done (title, date and walk leader only) and send them to you. Goes back to 2015. You can choose your favourite walk even if you are new to the group. When all the favourites are in, I will with the help of others prepare a booklet of 10 best historic walks. Groups 2 and 3 can also be involved in this if they wish – I will contact them and their convenors are included in this email.
Find a pin and a map of Suffolk and Norfolk – then (a bit like pin the tail on the donkey) blindfolded, place the pin in a random place. Then – voila, you have your town or village to research. Look up the history of this place and see if you can find a short on-line walk around it. Even if too far to go for our group, you could, if you have the curiosity, head for it when we are finally liberated from our homes. If you get a place you already know the history of, have another go.
I hope to phone every member of the group to see how you are doing if I have your number.
I am sticking to blind copy emails as no doubt some of you are already getting a proliferation of emails from various groups you are in. If you would like me to communicate ideas to the group, I will send a weekly email newsletter. Or, if there is a member of the group that you would like to contact, let me know and I will get their permission. NETTA.
DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC, ALL OUR HISTORIC WALKS ARE CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE If you wish to dream of what might have been, details of the walks which were planned can be found on the "Previous Walks 2020" page - follow the link in the box on the right-hand side of this page.
~DEPENDING ON WHEN IT IS SAFE FOR GROUP MEMBERS (many of whom are over 70 years old) TO ATTEND GROUP MEETINGS, WE WILL PUBLISH A FRESH PROGRAMME both on this website and by email.
If you have a query please feel free to contact our Convenor, Netta, using the bird-link at the top right of this page.
