I hope you are safe and well, and getting used to our different way of life under lock-down.
You will have heard a lot in the last few days about the easing of a few of the restrictions, which now mean that garden centres will be able to open and more exercise can be taken. Unfortunately the current changes do not allow us to restart our programme of walks, which was suspended in March. The legal regulations published two days ago still make it illegal to meet in groups of more than two people, and still require social distancing of at least two metres, as well as recommending that older and at-risk groups take additional precautions.
As a committee we are firm in our view that the safety of our walkers and walk leaders is our top priority, and having reviewed the current regulations we have agreed that our programme of walks and social events must remain suspended until the end of June. We will review the situation again towards the end of June and be in touch with you again at that time.
Many of you will be continuing to walk either alone or with members of your household, and as you know there are many interesting walks for you to follow in the Broxtowe area, so please continue to enjoy this free and healthy form of exercise. I hope to be able to welcome you to one our organised walks again at some point in the not-too-distant future, but in the meantime...
