I've just realised that the bus times I had been sent were for the winter timetable, so I have updated on the Ramblers website to the new times (depart / arrive 25 minutes later; walk start changed from 10.30 to 10.45 / when bus arrives). Weather forecast at the moment dry and cloudy / 17 degrees. Hopefully see lots of you there :)

Dear BAHR members,
Believe it or not, the time has come for me to plan the winter programme, from November 2017 to February 2018, covering the 17 Sundays listed below. Once again I am asking for help from both new and previous leaders to share a favourite walk or explore a new walk in an area that interests you. Walks can be led individually or jointly, by anyone who is a paid-up member of the Ramblers.
If you have any questions / want any help in planning a walk then if you…Continue
I'm afraid this walk has been cancelled due to illness of the leader.

Hope you will be able to join me on Sunday for a walk in a "different" area. (I'm trying for the most unusual starting location!). A couple of pieces of important information:-
1. Please read carefully the arrangements for meeting, as time and place varies depending if travelling by car or train;
2. As I've had very little interest in the lunch I have now decided to cancel this and instead stop for a bring-your-own picnic.
- any questions…Continue

Due to the very wet ground following recent rain and with further heavy rain forecast for most of today and all of Sunday it has regrettably been decided to cancel this walk. (The walk has been re-scheduled for 3rd April).
