Latest News - Updated Wednesday 16th June 2021

Covid Update. Now we have learned that the final stage of exiting lockdown has been delayed for (at least) four weeks there will be minimal changes to our short term plans and walks will continue to operate using the current protocols. This may entail walks based from "near" rather than "from" licenced premises and where we are able to use the venues previously advertised these are likely to continue with the walk desks based in outdoor areas such as gardens or smoking spaces. We look forward to (hopefully) late July when the rules are finally relaxed.

Our next Wednesday evening walk will take place from the Great Doddington Club on 23rd June at around 18.00. As stated above, please bear in mind that the venue will be still operating strict Covid rules and the walk desk may well be outside.

UPDATE - The subsequent Sunday walk is scheduled for 27th June at around 10.00 and will take place from the Crown Inn at Little Staughton. Contrary to earlier reporting the owners are happy to host this event on site. Car parking will only be available on one side of the car park only which will be overseen by the publican. Toilets will be available from 09.30. Pub will open at normal time of 12.00. Facemasks to be worn when entering bar and toilets.

We are now well on our way to having a full program of walks for you to enjoy this year. All Wednesday dates now have an assigned walk leader, but we are still looking for a few Sunday dates to be filled. If you can help us out please contact Steve Sloan or myself. If you feel able to help us with this – you would of course be supported by one of the team.

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING - the Annual General Meeting of the club is now scheduled for Thursday 19th August at the Old Grammarians HQ in Oxford Street, Wellingborough. Time is 19.30 for a 20.00 start and all members are welcome. Watch this space for further details.

FORTIETH ANNIVERSARY OF WWC - This summer will mark the fortieth anniversary of the Waendel Walkers Club, and due to the strange times we are living in right now we are still considering how this might be recognised and will communicate this once things become clearer. However whatever else may or may not happen we will be organising a limited edition 40 year club polo shirt. If you would like to make a provisional order for one of these please email or Facebook message us with quantity and size required in order for us to plan order quantities, or contact Andrew Whitehead directly or register interest at any walk desk. Price and final colourways are still under discussion as our suppliers have been unavailable during lockdown. We would expect to deliver these around July.
