    Hi, What a dramatic day, lovely walk, lots of laughs and pleasant people! Despite being blown about by the whims of the wind, we were treated to lots of delicious treats (thank you guys for widening my waistline), interesting conversation and, most importantly the unselfish kindness of people such as Peter, who not only led part of the ramble but provided me with door to door transport service; Tony who lightened Judy's load and Phil who led the walk and saved me from the vagaries of the strong wind.Oh! Thank you Sally for the explanation of the use of the yellow contraption and the compromising photo, for which I shall remember you in my will(lol).

    A fun walk - some of us slid through the mud under a fallen tree, I thought I was going to be blown off the hill ( sod the diet, need to gain some to add wind- defying stability!), we invented banana breaks, we welcomed lovely new member Melanie to the walk ( who has loads of great social ideas for us !), and dogging Phil lost his poo bags to wind ( Pete did ask the question if they were his or Alfie's ?!)
    Oh and poor Alfie got soooo cold, bless him!

    Hi all, really sorry I missed you all today. Hopefully Pete let you know I was stuck in surrey - there were a couple of trees down where I was (in the middle of nowhere) so after forcing myself out of bed at 6.30am I spent hours on the road and still didn't manage to get to you.....and the lemon drizzle cake remains unloved in my kitchen!! See you all next time hopefully.

      Hi Dianne, really sorry you didn't make it esp as you got up so early! You missed a good one. As Tony said 'wet and wild :-)'. WIll the lemon cake keep until Tuesday????

      Yeah it was a painful start for nothing!! The cake was made on Thursday night as that was the last time I was home and it was still doing well today but Tuesday would be a bit of a push! However I am off working in Anglesey all week this week so can't make the pub meet unfortunately. I am supposed to be at a cookery workshop ('knife skills!') next sunday but am trying to move it so will see you all then.....and will bring fresh cake!

    Hello,
    Just back from hospital. Dad is not well at all so I will be unable to attend the walk tomorrow. Wishing all of you an enjoyable walk in the Malvern and See you soon

    I'm sorry everyone, my nephew is currently on his way into the world so I've got an emergency trip up to Manchester tomorrow to meet him. I hope the walk goes well and I look forward to a walk with you all next week. Lorna

    Hi, I know everyone is up for this, but some have more experience than others so a word to the wise ... Tomorrow is going to be very wet on the Malverns so pls don't forget your waterproof bottoms not just top, hat, (waterproof) gloves (if you have any) and spare gloves (if you don't so you can change them half way round) as well as a hot drink and/or food. Please bear in mind 'warmth' issues esp. because of wind chill eg. on top of the Malverns plus wherever we might stop for a break. Merino wool or synthetic baselayers would be good to wear. If you have a dry bag or rucsac cover then great, but if not pls wrap/seal the stuff you don't want to get wet ie dry clothes/mobile phone in plastic bags and/or line your rucsac with a bin liner and tie it at the top

    I do have some spare kit (my kind of size obviously) so if you want to borrow any pls email me direct (Greg's list or go to the members list & email from there). Just remember 'If it's not raining it's not training' :-)

    Hello everybody, Don't want to be a pain but I had to admit dad to hospital this morning. So I'm again not sure for Sunday. If dad is discharged before Sunday will be there, and will let you know. Sorry might be a bit late for sharing lift....
    Hope you are all well

    Hi All, I will definitely be there but am heading to Malvern from surrey so it will be a 3 hour drive....what I am trying to say is if I am not there to start at 10 please give me 5 more minutes to get there!!

      Hi Dianne, pls let us know if you're going to be delayed (you never know traffic on a long journey). If we need, one person can stay behind and wait for you then both leg it up the hill to join the rest of the group. P

      Hi Phil, I have Sally's number so will text her if I am delayed, although hopefully traffic on a sunday morning won't be too bad. I will leave plenty of contingency as I don't fancy legging it up the hill!

    how does anybody feel about changing the meet point to the North Hill car park?
    i see no benefit in walking to the hills from the train station, unless of course some ppl are arriving by train!

      I'm neutral, are you or Tony leading this walk though as I'm not entirely sure what was agreed on Sunday! If you change any details, any member is allowed to edit the location, details etc so you don't need to go through me, and it seems that changes are automatically emailed to the yes RSVP group. If this isn't the case though please let me know and I'll have a play with the page settings! I think Joy doesn't drive though so train might be useful to her ?
