AGM Feedback

A big thank you to everybody who attended the AGM on 4 October 2018.  The good news is that we were able to elect a Committee and we can start the detailed planning for Festival 2019 which will take place over the weekend of 7 - 9 June 2019. 

The less good news is that we were unable to fill all the posts on the Committee which means we have insufficient resources to progress the full range of objectives in our Constitution.  As a consequence we have decided that we will cut back on a number of activities that are not directly in support of Festival 2019.  This includes production of this monthly newsletter - which will instead be sent out on an occasional basis when there is specific news relating to the Festival.

Festival 2019

As I have mentioned already, detailed planning for Festival 2019 has now commenced.  At this stage we are planning on there being about 25 walks over the three days - but the final number will depend upon the availability of volunteers to be walk leaders and back markers.  Currently we just about have enough volunteers for the planned walks - but we could do with having a couple of standbys to cover for any last minute problems.  If you want to know more about what is involved, please contact Sarah Keevil or Gill Fox

More details of the walking programme - and confirmation of the date that tickets will go on sale - will appear in future newsletters.

Walking Opportunities

The Corsham area provides walking opportunities all year round - whether self guided or with a local group.  The Corsham Bookshop and the Tourist Information Centre in Corsham High Street both have a small selection of booklets of local walks available for purchase and in addition there are a number of on line resources.

A number of national and local groups walk regularly in Corsham and the surrounding area and welcome new walkers.  If you do not walk regularly with the relevant group, it is advisable to contact them beforehand so they are aware of likely numbers on the walk.  More information - including contact details - can be found on the Corsham Walking Festival website or downloaded here

Until further notice we will no longer produce a detailed list of monthly walking opportunities as it is a particularly time consuming task.  We continue to seek volunteers to join the Committee and will keep the situation under review.

For Sale

We have two x 6' folding tables bought for an earlier festival which are now surplus to requirements. If you are interesting in buying one or both, please make an offer by Friday 16th November after which date they will be available for collection from Box.

Best foot forward
