Get Active Walk - Saturday 21st Nov 2009

The next walk is on Saturday November 21st 2009. That’s the day after the BBC Children in Need Appeal so to carry on the fun bring a bear or wear something spotty! The walk starts at The Bear and Ragged Staff, Cumnor. It’s a circular tour around the picturesque villages of Cumnor, Bessels Leigh, Appleton and Eaton so there’s a little road walking. However, most of the walk is on footpaths, some of which are very muddy, so boots or sturdy shoes are advisable. The walk is fairly flat and about 5 miles long. As always the walk will be lead at a pace to suit everybody and well behaved dogs are welcome.

We’ll meet at the pub car park of at 10.45am to start the walk about 11.00am. Please park at the far side of the car park away from the pub. Everyone should sign the disclaimer and if new people wouldn’t mind completing a monitoring form that would be great. Please make sure you sign the disclaimer every time you come on a walk.

We’ve made a group booking for lunch at the pub for those who wish to have lunch afterwards. There’ll be a menu for you to choose from so make sure you order your lunch before we set off on the walk!

So, whether you’ve joined us before or not, and feel that you can manage this walk put the date in your diary and come with us.

The weather of course is unpredictable and unknown at this stage. We’ll walk in all but the worst conditions but if you’re in any doubt about whether the walk is going ahead listen to Phil Mercer’s show on the Saturday morning between 6am and 9am.

Many charities encourage walking as a way of raising money. So before the start of the walk we are asking for a donation of £1 for a chosen charity. So far we have raised over £1,000 for both local and national charities. Before the walk this month we’ll make a collection for the BBC Children in Need Appeal.

We look forward to seeing you on the next walk.
