January will truly be a 'walking' month for Malpas Field Club.
The first event in the programme for 2019 is the annual New Year's Ramble, led by David Hayns on Sunday 6th January, starting from the Jubilee Hall in Malpas High Street at 1.30 pm.
This will be a walk (about 3¼ miles) taking in Sunnyside, Carding Fields and Oldcastle.
Anyone is welcome including well-behaved children, and dogs, which must be kept on leads throughout the walk.
Please wear stout footwear for what could be a muddy route in places.
At the first indoor meeting for the New Year, on Wednesday 9th January (7.45 pm), at Malpas High Street Church SY14 8PR, the appropriately named Philip Walker will give an illustrated presentation on 'A walk through Whitchurch 100 years ago'.
Philip's talk will use old photographs of Whitchurch blended with present-day views of the same scenes, to 're-create' Whitchurch around 1911.
For a copy of the current programme to be sent by post or email, or for further information about the Field Club, please contact secretary David Hayns (Tel: 01948 860486 email@example.com).
