For your Diary

AGM Saturday 14th November 2020 at 4pm.

In November we usually gather, after a walk, in Farnborough Village Hall for tea, cake and a bit of a chat, oh and we have our AGM,  We report how we are doing, elect officers for the coming year, that sort of thing. This year will have to be different and we are going to hold the AGM over Zoom. All Members who have given Ramblers or Bromley Ramblers their email address should have received an email explaining how they can participate and it will include a Meeting ID and a passcode that keeps the meeting private. For those who don’t have email and  broadband we are writing to explain what is going on and can only suggest they pair up with someone who does have access on the day, always assuming this is allowed at the time by the Covid regulations. You will need to download and install Zoom in advance from the App/Play Store and the simple instructions you need are in the document "How to join our Zoom AGM" below.

It is not ideal but it might be fun and who knows we might get more members participating this way.

The documents you will need are

How to join our Zoom AGM, it's dead easy

Minutes of the previous AGM, we will approve these on the day

Do try to join in, your committee is puting quite a lot of effort in as it is all new to us. It would be a shame if we were the only ones there on the day.

 

 

GUIDED WALKING GROUP - SPAIN, March 2021

The Finca el Cerrillo is a small, friendly hotel run by a British couple.  It is in the Sierra Almijara in Andalucia and about an hour’s drive from Malaga.   You can find out all about it at www.hotelfinca.com and on Trip Advisor.

The Finca offers guided walking holidays.  Their package includes pick-up and drop-off at the airport, full board with a fixed menu for dinner, a choice of two guided walks each day with one rest day, and transport to and from the walks as needed. 

What’s the walking like?  The Finca is at almost 600m in hilly country and is at the foot of mountains going up to 2,000m.  There are two levels of guided walks each day; level 1 walks are for 3-4 hours, are easy-paced with ascents of about 300m; and level 2 walks are for 5-6 hours with ascents of up to 700m. 

Date and Price  The Finca has offered an attractive deal for the week of 6-13 March 2021  The package mentioned above is €795 per person with no supplement for single occupancy.  They  want a non-refundable deposit of €150 per person and for the booking to be confirmed by Easter.  The balance is due 8 weeks before the holiday. 

You would need to arrange and pay for your own flights to Malaga.  You would also need to have travel insurance which covers you for walking as an activity. 

Booking and Payments   Your deposit and balance will be paid to me in sterling and I will arrange money transfers in euro’s to the Finca.

The Finca is a small hotel with just 14 rooms.  If you want to be sure of your place, please let me have a cheque for £150 per person for your deposit, made payable to me - see my address below. 

Please say if you want a double room for two people; are prepared to share a twin-bedded room with some-one else; or want to have a room to yourself.  Please also give your email address and mobile number so that I can acknowledge receipt and let you know about progress. 

If you have any questions, please email me at bew4448@gmail.com, text me on 07948212327, write to me at the address below or buttonhole me on a walk.
