Coach Trip to Baslow There will be two walks – 6 miles and 10.5 miles or you can come along and do your own thing – maybe going to Chatsworth. The cost for this will be £11 per person.

Sunday 1 October
Lincolnshire Day. This year 1 October falls on a Sunday and as lot of the pubs just do a carvery on Sundays we decided to do something a bit different so we will be walking from Swallow starting at 10:30. The walk will be about 6 miles and we will have a couple of drinks stops but not a lunch stop and we will go to Swallow Village Hall where the ladies will provide (early) afternoon tea. They ask for a donation for their funds. Can we ask that this reflects the value of the always generous amounts of food they provide. There will be sandwiches, sausage rolls, cakes, tea and coffee. We would suggest a MINIMUM donation of £5 per head. In order to help them plan the catering please can you let me know if you intend to join us. We will be glad to welcome anyone who doesn’t want to walk but would like to come out for the afternoon tea. I would expect we will be at the Village Hall by 13:30.
Thursday 12 October
Group AGM 19:30 at Utterby Village Hall. We will elect the committee for 2017-2018. Please send nominations to Joan Johnson. After the business is complete, we will have a speaker from the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance and we will be making collections for this during walks in September. Do please support this very worthwhile charity. As usual we will be serving cheese, nibbles, wine and soft drinks after the meeting and the talk. Do support us. It is always an enjoyable evening. We look forward to seeing you there!
