WALKING GROUP'S ALTERED ARRANGEMENTS.
The walking group will meet at9.00 amevery Wednesday morning at SPEERS POINT PARK. Parking is available in the newest carpark area directly opposite the main entrance to the park, toilet block and Sals Cafe. We will walk through the park and under the Five Islands Bridge along the creek to Cockle Creek Railway Station and return. We consider this option to be the safer and convenient during this current period. We will review our options at a later date.
FUTURE MONTHLY COFFEE WALKS
Well, the group decided recently that we will embark on our programme of monthly coffee walks on the last Wednesday of each month and keeping in mind the social distance etc rules this is what is proposed for coffee walks to different locations during this covidvirus time.
COFFEE WALK WEDNESDAY 25 NOVEMBER
We will meet at
Croudace Bay Park in the last car park on your left coming from Valentine (that
is almost opposite Moani Street, Eleebana) which is adjacent to a jetty and
boatramp. We walk northwest around the foreshore to Toonibal Street, Eleebana
and then head back to Croudace Bay Park to commence the circuit path around the
park. After the walk we will enjoy Alfresco Morning Tea in one of the
shelter sheds. So bring along your thermos of hot water and
I invite you to join us in RED tops and BLUE caps for a walk, talk, coffee and friendship,
Thanks Ron T
Men’s Probus Club Of Valentine WALKING GROUP.
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.
