Although our 2020 AGM has been cancelled due to Covid-19, our Annual Report, Financial Statement and Statistical Report for 2019-20 are now available on our EEHW Information page under Documents. The Annual Report includes plans to request a donation of £10 from each walker in or after 2021.
We had planned to hold our 2020 AGM at Boidier Hurst, Headley on Wednesday 13 May. Following on from the cancellation of health walks until further notice, the AGM has also been cancelled. We are still aiming to have our annual report and supporting documents available on our web site by 30 April.
Ramblers Walking for Health have advised that in accordance with Government recommendations all health walks will be suspended until further notice so the walk scheduled for tomorrow (Wednesday 18 March) is cancelled as are all future walks until further notice.
We are aiming to advise all those who have walked in 2020 by E-mail over the next couple of days. If you haven’t received an E-mail by Friday 20 March it is probably because we do not hold your current E-mail address and so we would ask that you send this to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can advise you when health walks restart.
At present our health walks are continuing as scheduled. However, this may change at short notice either because we are given guidance to stop all walks or because walk leaders withdraw at short notice and walks have to be cancelled. Any changes or cancellations will be posted here when they become known. We may also try and inform likely attendees by E-mail. If you didn’t give your E-mail address when you registered or it may have changed, please send your current E-mail address to email@example.com
Our 2020 AGM will be held at 11.30 on Wednesday 13 May at Boidier Hurst Scout Camp, Box Hill Road, Headley, KT20 7PL It will be preceded by optional 1 hour and 30 minute walks starting at 10.00 and 10.30 respectively. Coffee will be available prior to the meeting. For further information see the AGM 2020 Invite under Documents under EEHW Information on our Information page.
In view of the forecast gales and heavy rain this walk has been cancelled.
Church Road Headley, which most walkers use to reach Headley Heath, will be closed for most of 2020 to allow water main replacement. The walks scheduled to take place there on Wed 5 Feb and Sun 29 Mar have therefore been moved to Epsom Downs. An amended version of the Winter 2020 Programme is available to download from this Site although these are the only changes.
Between the months of April and October and on mild winter days small spider-like Ticks live on heathland particularly where there is bracken and very occasionally they can attach themselves to human skin. Fortunately such occasions are rare .Although walkers may wear what clothing they wish official medical recommendation is that when walking in such areas walkers should wear long sleeve shirts and long trousers tucked into socks. We already recommend wearing stout shoes. We must again stress that such occurrences are rare but have a duty to inform you.
We have redesigned our website. The front page has been simplified for first time visitors. Regular walkers can find walking programmes and routes from either the menu at the top of each page or the links on the front page. Cancellation of events will be posted on the Notices page. Comments are welcome. Old news items and reports are still available.
