Bradfield Paths Photo Op Cancelled

General Posted on 12 November 2019 09:13

Dear all,

As you maybe aware we had planned to have a Photo Op with our AGM Guest Speaker, Paco Gonzalez, from Ramblers Worldwide Holidays, nailing a RWH Plaque to one of the stiles that we had repaired as part of the Bradfield Paths Improvement Project today. The RWH had helped sponsor this project. This was to take place at 10:30am today.

In the light of the continuing rain today we have decided to CANCEL this photo op and will arrange to do it another day when it will be fine. Paco has been informed and is OK with that decision. Please inform anyone you know who might be thinking of attending.

Don’t forget that a big publicity Launch for the Bradfield Paths Renewal Project is being arranged to take place at 12 noon on Wednesday February 26th 2020 at the Bradfield Village Hall to which everyone is invited to come along and support. Ramblers Worldwide Holidays and the other sponsors to the project will also be invited to attend.

A number of walks are being arranged to join up with it.
Please put the date in your diaries
