A MESSAGE FROM THE WALKING GROUP

The walking group currently has 31 members. We take turns to organise walks of approximately 5 miles / 2 hours plus coffee stops. Last year between lockdowns the group achieved 11 local walks. Walks can be as frequent as we like depending on who is organising the walk and at a date and time decided by them. If any new or existing member would like their name added to this group, please reply to the email sent out to all members. So far this year the group has walked from Church Ope Cove to Portland Bill, from Martinstown to Maiden Castle and from Osmington to Ringstead. It's a good way to meet and chat with members and enjoy the glorious Dorset countryside. Jo (W

LUNCH CLUB

The lunch club meets monthly with members taking it in turns to arrange a suitable venue. Marisa Ronzitti arranged the first lunch club meeting at The Kings Arms in Portesham after months of restrictions. The second lunch in November was in the lovely village of Martinstown at The Brewers Arms. A report from the lunch is in the News pages.

ANNUAL BIKE RIDE

Jan Summers organises the popular annual bike ride. 2012 was particularly exciting after months of being confined. For new members this is open to everyone, e-bikes, road bikes or your daily bike you use for shopping, everyone is welcome. In the past, we have cycled around Weymouth using where possible cycle paths, stopping for a coffee en route and then a café or pub for lunch. For the more hardy, some have continued after lunch and then stopped for an afternoon cup of tea or even a gin and tonic.
