As you all know, there have been changes in the way the Teignmouth & Dawlish Ramblers is administered.
In my new role as Chair, I would like to continue our traditions of walking for pleasure, exercise and friendship while encouraging existing, and new, members to get involved in our many activities. I am to be assisted by a General Committee with a separate Social Group, who can all be contacted through our website.
The Spring Walking Programme is currently being worked on so please submit dates and details. I would like to encourage new leaders to volunteer and can provide help with route planning. We are also providing Leaders for the Dawlish Walking Festival early in May and hope many of you will join in their activities. One walk goes around the extraordinary large number of pubs in Dawlish but most of these are (sadly), closed: why did Dawlish have so many? We are also contributing to the Voluntary Groups Exhibition at TAAG in January.
Although we hope that the weather will allow us to continue a full programme of walks, there are several other events which may be of interest. Our Social Committee are sending you a separate e-mail with full details and planned activities and holidays; I’ve been told they have “exciting plans”.
I hope everyone enjoys the Festive Season and look forward to happy times in 2019.
Chair, Teignmouth & Dawlish Ramblers
