Bluebell Walk 2020 Cancellation

Our thanks to those who had registered interest in taking part in this years’ Bluebell Walk, but in view of the anticipated peak in Coronavirus cases we have reluctantly decided to cancel the event. It would be irresponsible for us to go ahead with it and expose those club members and walkers who are most at risk to the possibility of contracting a serious illness, or worse.
