WINTER WALKS 8
Details of the walk can be found here
DATE & LOCATION
29 April The Red Lion, Southwick
The last of the series of winter walks takes place on SATURDAY 29th APRIL and will start and finish at The Red Lion pub in Southwick. The walk commences at the usual time of 10am. Due to a commitment elsewhere in the country Judith and I will not be available on the day of the walk, but arrangements had been made for Judith and Phil Hoar to lead this final one of the season (our thanks to them for taking this on). This particular walk was planned back in November, as you will see from photographs, however the four of us will complete a full recce prior to the 29th so there will hopefully be no unwanted surprises.
Orders for lunch will be taken prior to starting and we hope as many as possible are able to stay to what has proved over the months a pleasant and relaxing way to finish our walks. Should the weather be poor please contact JUDITH HOAR on either 02392-597943 or 07760-248599 between 0800 and 0900 on the morning of the walk to ascertain if it is still going ahead.
Looking ahead to the summer season, remember we start the usual weekly walks on TUESDAY 9th MAY at 7.30pm and these will last approximately 90 minutes continuing throughout the summer until the end of August. Details will be posted on the Denmead Parish Council website and those on the walks contact list will receive personal emails weekly from me.
Sorry not to be with you on the 29th but hope to see many of you for more enjoyable romps on a Tuesday evening throughout the summer.
Statement from the Chairman of Denmead Parish Council
Denmead Parish Council provides a series of youth clubs for the children of Denmead and has done so for many years. We have a duty to the council taxpayers of Denmead to make sure that the provision is run as efficiently as possible and to the parents that we provide a suitable programme of activities for their children. As well as ensuring that we are meeting both our legal and contractual obligations, we also need to make sure that the service we are providing is safe and appropriate and attracting as many children as possible. To do that we have undertaken a review of the current provision with a view to seeing what needs to be refreshed to ensure a healthy youth club going forward.
