Overview

Hello Everyone

Something different this Sunday with a short local walk from downtown Cannock before most of the group partake in our annual Christmas meal held at Saint Mary's Social Club. From the nearby Hallcourt Lane car park we'll be trekking off eastwards before looping around in a northerly direction and returning to base in good time for mealtime🍽️🍽️. Some urban bits. Some nice bits too. 

Whilst the meal is fully booked the walk is open to everyone, so if you fancy a bit of a short and easy taster why not come along and join us? If this is your first time with Chase Ramblers it'd be ideal if you could let us know beforehand please so that we can keep an eye out for you, thanks. If you've been before just turn up.

Registration: 09.45. Walk start: 10.00.

Our own members should note that there is no rendezvous at Hednesford this week. Please go direct to the start.

See you all there!
