Get Active Walk - Saturday 30th January 2010

The next walk is on Saturday January 30th 2010. The walk is in the area to the east of Thame. We’ll meet at the Three Horseshoes pub in Towersey at 10.30am to start the walk about 10.45am. The route includes a section of The Phoenix Trail, the tarmac and gravel path created on the dismantled railway line that runs between Thame and Princes Risborough. The rest of the route includes farm tracks, quiet roads and a short footpath. This route has been carefully chosen to avoid getting wet feet but it’s quite muddy in places, so boots or sturdy shoes are highly recommended. The walk is fairly flat and about 6 miles long. As always the walk will be lead at a pace to suit everybody. Well behaved dogs are welcome but for the safety of cyclists in particular, must be on a lead while on the Phoenix Trail.

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.

After the walk we can have a well earned lunch at Three Horseshoes pub in Towersey. I have made a group booking for about 2.00pm and I will have a menu so that we can order our food before we set off. If you’d like lunch make sure you give me your order on Saturday morning!

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 more than £1,080 for both local and national charities. Before the walk this month we’ll make another collection for the Foetal Medicine Unit at the J.R. Hospital.
