- Annual Hike Norfolk Committee meeting
Come and join us on our committee meeting in a friendly informal atmosphere. Bring your ideas and questions about the group, see how you can get involved more in walk leading and Don't Loose Your Way Project or simply have a friendly chat and talk with like-minded people. Due to ongoing Coronavirus pandemic we're not sure if we'll be able to meet in person in an indoor location or meet at all. Therefore location might change or meeting might be changed to an online zoom meeting and joining instructions will be send in the message on meetup/Hike Norfolk WhatsApp group.
- Hike Norfolk: Sheringham Circular Walk - Priories & Park 9mls
Sheringham - Priories & Park This is a pretty circular walk along cliff-tops; woodland; parkland and quiet lanes from Sheringham to Weybourne Priory and returning via Sheringham Park; Sheringwood and Beeston Priory. Start point: We’ll be starting at 10:30 from Sheringham boating lake, The Esplanade, Sheringham NR26 8LQ. If you have any COVID-19 symptoms you must not attend this or any other group walk. This is a socially distanced walk following Ramblers guidance and Government rules and guidance - which must be adhered to at all times, bearing particular reference to social distancing, the use of hand sanitiser and as little contact with all objects, gates, fences etc that you didn’t bring with you. For more information please refer to the Ramblers advice at: https://www.ramblers.org.uk/coronavirus and the Government FAQ at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-outbreak-faqs-what-you-can-and-cant-do/coronavirus-outbreak-faqs-what-you-can-and-cant-do#visiting-public-places-and-taking-part-in-activities. If you’re still in doubt then please email me on Meetup, post a comment below or ask me on the day. The going is generally good underfoot considering the recent weather but is a little muddy in a couple of places so please bring suitable footwear and clothing for the time of year. There will be two or three breaks for drinks along the way, plus a stop for lunch which you will need to bring with you. For this walk you must be a member of the Ramblers. I'm limiting the maximum number of people on this walk to 15 in order to facilitate social distancing on this specific route. Given that, please do not sign up unless you're absolutely sure that you can make it and will turn up. If, in the event, you're unable to attend then please give as much notice as possible and allow someone else the opportunity.

- Hike Norfolk 2021 Weekend Away - Seven Sisters (16-18 April 2021)
PLEASE READ ALL OF THIS BEFORE RSVP'ING! It was all looking so good in 2020, we had 40 people coming to Eastbourne for our Seven Sisters weekend and we had booked a pub and restaurant to cope with those numbers. This was the highest ever number on a Hike Norfolk trip away, but unfortunately, it was lost to the virus. On the bright side, most people gave their deposits to homeless charities (and, OK, we kept some for a party which we haven't had yet), but it's now time to plan next year's event. I can't be bothered to write everything up again (here's last year's event, it'll be the same plan, https://www.meetup.com/hikenorfolk/events/261669255/) but we're trying again in 2021. There are no deposits for this event, but I imagine that fewer people will want to go for various reasons. If anyone thinks they'd like to go from 16 to 18 April 2021, just RSVP. Don't worry about whether you think it'll be safe, whether you can make it, etc, that's a decision for early next year. We don't know whether this weekend can even take place, but I'm hopeful. IMPORTANTLY!!! I've opened up the RSVPs to all, but anyone going in 2020 will get priority. So, if we need to limit numbers, we'll give people who were going to the 2020 weekend priority, not those who RSVPed to this event first.
