2020 Birthday Walk POSTPONED


It is with great regret that we have decided to postpone the annual Edward Thomas Birthday Walk, due to take place this Sunday, 1st March, owing to ground conditions, tree damage on the Hangers and concerns for participants safety on what will undoubtedly be difficult terrain.
This will also mean postponement of the Fellowship’s AGM scheduled to take place in the afternoon.
Both events will be rearranged to a date either in early April or early May and please keep a look out for a notice here or on our Facebook page.
Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this decision may have caused you.
