Arthur Foden

We were recently saddened to hear of the death of our club president Arthur Foden on Christmas Eve.

Roger Gibbs, who knew him as a friend, has written a fitting tribute.

Changes to the April programme

In a change to our printed programme for April, our walk to Bagworth will now take place on the 19th, instead of the 12th April, while our Derwent Valley Heritage Trail walk (Borrowash to Allestree) will now take place on the 12th, instead of the 19th April. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Walk leaders needed for future programmes

In order to assist our forward planning and ensure continuity in our future programmes, we would like to encourage more members to volunteer to lead walks.

Even if you have never led a walk before, training can be paid for by the group.
