Summer Walks Programme 2021


We are in very difficult times and our ability to predict the future is sorely lacking.
This is the intended programme of walks for Summer 2021 but they are likely to change at very short notice.
We intend to run meetings online, using Zoom , if we cannot meet in the Museum building.
Please contact Martyn, our secretary, who will provide you with more details by clicking here
