Please let me know if you wish to attend a walk as we sometimes have last minute cancellations and cannot let you know a walk has been cancelled if we did not know your intention of attending that walk.
If anyone has a walk that they feel they could lead as a 'one off walk leader' then i would be really pleased to hear from them.
Group Facilitator: Mike Best
