New walks leaders needed

The task of leading walks for OFS is falling on an ever decreasing number of members. For each six month period there are 26 weekends so if there is to be a walk at the weekend as well as one midweek then more leaders are needed so that 50 walks can be offered, it is not fair to ask a small number of leaders to be leading a walk every month in order for there to be a full programme. If you feel that you could lead a walk or would like help to reccy and then lead one please contact Liz Adams: or 01865 726031 for details and a leader pack of information.
