A message from our group chair:

I hope everyone has enjoyed what has been a relatively dry summer in our area and that many of you have been able to join us on some of our midweek, evening and Sunday walks. Our summer evening walks, as ever led by Karen Veal, have proved to be especially popular again this year, and with Covid restrictions lifting, it has been good to hear that so many of you have taken advantage of the long summer evenings and (mostly!) fine weather to join us for a short walk and pub stop to catch up with old friends and newer members.

We were able to have our first real social event, since Covid, at the end of August with a well-attended tea party, and there was a 'lunch' walk earlier in the summer, which shows that it is now possible to combine socials with walking, now that most people are double-vaccinated. Hopefully, the lower risk of hospitalisation from Covid now that nearly all of us have had the vaccine will mean that we can get back to as near normal as possible in the coming weeks, with the possibility that some of the restrictions we have retained to keep people safe may be relaxed.

We still have lots to enjoy before Christmas, with our full programme of walks, the Bedfordshire Walking Festival in September and our AGM in November, which will be my last as Chair after 4 years in the job.

Best wishes, Andrea Deeley (Group Chair)
