Events

We are always planning ahead. Please let us know if you would like a visit to anywhere, if you can arrange a visit or even invite members to your home to use your garden or have a barbecue. Let’s work together to meet as many other members as possible. Because of my continuing mobility problems I really could do with some help organising visits to clubs, beaches and, if you are going on holiday, why not suggest others join you at that location?

Spielplatz – apart from offering a generous discount Spielplatz is inviting our subscribers to participate in events throughout the season. If you wish to camp, please book early. To obtain the discount you MUST have your VALID Shabden membership card with you and show it on each visit. All visits (whether Shabden or not) must be prebooked. Website Spielplatz.club for more information.

Naked Ramblers, Stark Trekkers, WNBR and Naked Heart Walks are separate listings below main listing.

Each walk is between 9 and 13 miles. S indicates there is a short option. Proper footwear is needed because of the terrain. Please bring something that you can cover up with quickly if required.

Bring packed lunch and water, afterwards many stay on for a meal in the pub. You are expected to follow any instructions from the group leader and to be fit enough for a walk of this length.

For more information email the walks organiser, Peter Whiston, at peter@addicks.fsnet.co.uk or go to the website http://www.justwearasmile.co.uk/natram
