A change of venue this year.  We start and finish the walk at Lawford Church.  Please park on the field forming part of Lawford Hall.There will be no organised lunch this year, so please bring a picnic or arrange to have lunch in the village. We shall attend the annual Carol Service for walkers and cyclists in Lawford Church.  The service begins at 3pm but it is wise to arrive early as this popular event fills the church.

Members and their guests are welcome on walks, as are well behaved dogs on leads.

Suggested minimum donation for each walk: £3 per person.
