n behalf of the Bedfordshire Area Committee, I would like to formally invite you to our AGM on Sunday 28th November.



As you are no doubt aware the latest Ramblers advice is that indoor Group and Area activities are not advised. This means that whilst this year's Area AGM will again be held online via a Zoom meeting starting at 2.30pm. The day will commence with a morning walk starting at 10.00 from Old Warden Village Hall, which will be open to all (full details of which can be found on Ivel Valley Walkers programme)



To register your intention to attend the meeting can you please notify the Area Chair (Nick Markham) in writing by email (bedswalkfest@gmail.com) or by post (66 Fallowfield, Ampthill, MK45 2TS), by Saturday 20th November at the latest. To attend the meeting you will require access to Zoom either via your computer or smart phone (the software is available on https://zoom.us/



A formal link to the AGM will be sent to you the day before the meeting.



The current Area Committee will be standing again for next year, however we are looking to improve our Social Media presence in the future. If you would be interested in helping us achieve this goal can you please notify Nick in writing.

Also if you have something you'd like to have included in Any Other Business can you please notify the Area Chair in writing also by the 20th November



We look forward to seeing you both at the morning walk and the Area AGM afterwards.

Regards
Nick

It is that time of the year again. I would like walk leaders to fill the midweek programme from January 2022 to April 2022.


When you look at the midweek dates you will notice I have added Thursdays in between the two weekly cycle of the midweek walks. It would be brilliant if we could have a midweek walk every week.


For any walk leader who wants to lead a walk at the end of April, please, take into account this the time of the LB Ramblers Spring Break at Coleford.


Please find attached the dates for the Midweek Winter Programme 2022.


You can send your walks to mw-walks-coord@lb_ramblers.org.uk or to
miketshep@gmail.com.

Following the collapse of a large portion of the Walking for Health walks in Leighton Buzzard, caused largely by the pandemic, some of us have taken on the organizing of leaders for these walks. The walkers are frequently recommended by their GP to improve their mobility or mental health by ensuring that they meet others regularly.



The walkers meet on a Monday at 10am at the Tennis Club Car Park opposite Morrisons and then divide into several groups according to capability. The walks are timed from 30 to 90 minutes and are around the town mainly on hard paths. They go at different speeds and therefore cover longer distances to accommodate the needs of the walkers.



This is a request for voluntary leaders to help lead these walks. It will not involve leading a walk every week as a rota will be set up to ensure that there are sufficient leaders available without a weekly commitment.



Leaders are required to undertake a one day training course run by the county organiser at Cardington. They will then have to join two walks with a trained leader before being certificated and able to lead walks themselves.



If you would be interested in becoming a Walking for Health leader or would like more information please either reply to this email or contact me on 07770 344914.

Julian Chritchlow
