Posted on Updated on

You are a valuable part of the club: 

Thanks to each and everyone of you, we are made it happen yet again. Another successful year of brilliant walks and trips all around the country.

As a member of the club, we hope you had loads of fun over the year, hiking over mountains and flat lands, around lakes and forests, exploring the country side and getting to know the history and bio-diversity of the places. And most important of all, making friends and cherished memories.

Now, it is that time of the year, where we let others know, who we are and what we do. Once again, we request your support and ask you cast your votes. And make your voice heard. EVERY VOTE COUNTS!

If you enjoyed our walks and if you believe we deserve to be valued as one of the best clubs in Cranfield, click on the link below and cast your votes.

Saturday 11th May: Odell-Harrold country park

Posted on Updated on

A yummy walk, both the sights and the cake!

284820_262213713789548_2227830_nFrom Odell, Mill Lane/Horsefair Lane. This is a 5 1/2 miles circular route, gently ascending to the high ground in the bends of the River Great Ouse with great views when walking the ridge and on the way down (they say you can see five churches). Stop at Harrold visitor centre where tea and cake is available (optional). After this we will continue on to see the woodcarvings, finishing with a walk by the river. Bring a drink and snack for the break half way round; there are the usual styles and steps, wear appropriate footwear and clothing for a walk in the country.

Meet by the Natwest bank @ 1:30 p.m.

The walk will cost £5 for members, £7 for non-members as there is transport involved, depending on numbers if there is money left over we will add it to the cake fund 🙂

Sign up sheet will be in the CSA from Tuesday 7th May, deadline for signing up is Friday 10th May at 2:00pm

 We are going to start the walk in the village of Great Barford, famous for its medieval bridge. Break at Danish Camp  – described as Bedfordshire’s best kept secret (we might spot a European eagle owl there), followed by a stop to admire the magnificent historical Dovecote and stables managed by National Trust. The walk will finish at Go Outdoors store at Goldington Road, Bedford, for some afternoon  shopping. Perfect if you like to try on new walking boots or get a new base layer!

Big thank you goes to Deborah who came up with the idea for this lovely walk.
