A brisk 6 mile circular walk around Trent Lock. Afterwards, why not join us for a friendly and social lunch after the walk. Route details: Everyone is welcome - it is suitable for all ability levels as there will be catching up points, and the group is very friendly and social - so if it's your first time, or you are returning you can be sure that you will be made very welcome. PS. Why not bring a plastic bag with you and help us to leave the area better than we found it? You can do this by picking up any litter you see on the route (if safe to do so). Deposit the bag later in a bin on route or in town. Bending down is great exercise too!
If you can't attend please change your RSVP to allow the next person to take your place. Don't RSVP and not turn up! Just pay for your own food and drink. They do a superb Sunday roast and lots of other choices too. We will have our own private dining area so you will be able to chat with people you might not have had chance to chat with on the walk.
