The 40th Anniversary Celebrations continue with
the installation of the Commemorative Bench
20/5/16 and our posh bench was placed by our working party comprising of Tony Fawle, Chairman, Mike Zobel, Charles Gorton, Mike Aldridge and brother John.
They were met by Otterhampton Council Chairman Barry Leathwood at the installation and he thought it was a real treat which will rest many a weary walker on their travels. In the next edition of their parish magazine he is going to put a feature in about the bench.

Offering stunning views of coastline, moorland, woodland and combe with the very real possibility of sighting ponies and deer, these walks will take full advantage of this beautiful area of Somerset. With walk leaders keen to share their local knowledge of the area and with tea and homemade cake available on your return, you can enjoy great days out.
All the walks are FREE but booking is essential - closing date 8th June.
Sorry, but due to the time of year and the nature of the walks - assistance dogs only.
Booking form available on this the page!!
Progress is being made in preparation for the other planned events to celebrate our 40th anniversary
• A commemorative Bench to be installed at Combwich
• A commemorative Plaque on the new, yet to be created, Castle to Castle path.
More details of these events can be found in the current programme and on the Information pages.
Thank you to all the members who have already volunteered their services. These are exciting events for us and it promises to be an enjoyable year; it will be lovely if as many members as possible get involved and participate in the celebrations - cake makers, tea makers walk leaders, poster distributors and general “good eggs” will all help make the events a great success.
Following Don’s move to Surrey and changes in the committee the position of Publicity Secretary is becoming vacant, if anyone is interested in taking on the position of Publicity Secretary please contact Tony Fawle. A lengthy handover period will be available - you don’t need to be a computer whizz at all.
