WALKS FOR 2021
Every Wednesday, except the last Wednesday of the month, we will gather at  the car park in Speers Point Park opposite the main entry to the park.  We will meet there at 9.00 am. Our journey takes  us through the park heading right along Cockle Creek and under the Five Islands  Bridges towards Booragul.  After 30 minutes or so we commence our return to  the vehicles.  If there is sufficient interest we may indulge in coffee and  refreshments.  We have  become visible in our RED tops and BLUE (Probus) caps. Masks are at your discretion.


COFFEE WALK WEDNESDAY 24th November 2021
Swansea
We meet in the carpark at the Swansea RSL
and walk over to west of the bridge under the Swansea Bridge. We walk along the footpath
beside Channel Street towards Swansea Holiday Park. Then walk around the park and return
towards Swansea Bridge. Coffee will be at a local coffee shop.







Men’s Probus Club Of Valentine        WALKING GROUP.

Fellow members,

Our  group has been functioning in our club for many years.  For new Club  Members, I thought I would enlighten you about our activities.
We  meet every Wednesday morning at 9.00 am, which we have found is a  convenient day and time.  In day light saving months when the weather is  warmer and the temperature is rising, we decide upon a date and time to  meet earlier, usually mid-November at 8.30 EDLST.

I  send an email to all our participants on Monday or Tuesday jogging  their memory of the Wednesday walk and those who can’t make it generally  send an inability reply or ring me. Should the weather gods be unkind,  and the walk needs to be cancelled, I send an email by 8.30 am or 8:00  am EDLST Wednesday cancelling the walk.  Those who do not have a  computer receive a telephone call or SMS message.

Unlike  an “organised walking group” out to climb the highest peaks or to  traverse the longest of walks, we are a group of friends out to keep the  limbs moving, the lungs working and our minds active.  We tend towards  walks we consider are reasonably flat, safe for our age and are not  health risks.

On the last Wednesday of every month we  do a COFFEE WALK.  I try to go to different locations in the Newcastle  and Lake Macquarie where we can engage in a pleasant walk of similar  distance, i.e. 2 kms and stop mid-way or at the end for COFFEE, at a  suitable Cafe.

A  few of our members are accompanied by their wife who are regular  attendees, so if you are able to participate and your wife/partner would  like to join the group, they are most welcome.

Unlike most activities the only expense is the petrol to get you to and from the location plus a monthly coffee and cake.
If you would like to join us, please contact me.

We hope to see you for the walk, fellowship and talk on Wednesdays.
