Mid-Staffordshire Ramblers Group

Centred on Stafford

November 2018 – February 2019

Hello everybody, welcome to this edition of our Newsletter and details of the walks    and activities that have been organised for our members and prospective members.

There are still vacancies on the committee and we would welcome your help to run your group, as the current committee will not go on indefinitely and new people bring in new ideas.

The Supper Ramble on 2nd August 2018 was a great success and the meal at the Barley Mow was enjoyed by all. Thanks to Vera and Chris.

The Family Day walk on  29th August 2018 was a success, Carole wishes to repeat this next year more support would be welcomed as the children are the walk leaders of the future.

The coach ramble on 8th September 2018 the weather was against us, surprisingly everyone had a good time. The support we received was disappointing but we managed to break even. Thank you to all the walk leaders David, Greg and Angie, and Carole.

The weekend break to Lake District 14 – 16th September, 15 of the group enjoyed the weather, the walks and the views where outstanding. Many thanks to all the hard work of Nicky and also to Gerald and Sally. Thank you to the walk leaders David and Carole. It was a brilliant weekend.

The new walks programme has some very interesting walks a huge variety that may appeal to everybody’s ability. A big thank you to all walks’ leaders who have provided walks.
