Short Walks February Update

On the 18th February 22 members enjoyed a 5.5miles circular walk from The Griffin’s Head in Papplewick .
The route is a local ‘classic’ via the Linby Trail to Newstead Abbey and Papplewick Hall.
It was organised and led by one our new coordinators Barbara Broomhead who together with Liz Edwards has officially taken over coordinating the short walks group.
We are extremely grateful to them and it is up to us all to help by offering to organise and lead some of our monthly walks .This is especially important in the next few months as Liz and Barbara settle in to the role.
