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. Ourmonthly coffee walkswill not be organised until further notice.
29/7/20 - Agenda
Well being the last Wednesday of the month I should be arranging a Coffee
Walk, but since we had coffee and party time last week I thought we would down
play this Wednesday’s walk.
Therefore, weather permitting, we will meet at Speers Point car park at
9.00 am and walk under the Five Islands Bridge towards the Cockle Creek Railway
Station and after 30 minutes head back to our cars. Should space be
available in Sal’s Cafe we could be tempted to have a coffee and
If it rains I will send an email out by 8.30 am on Wednesday to cancel the
walk and we can stay dry and safe at home.
So I hope to see you on Wednesday at 9.00 am in RED tops and Blue Caps.
AS THE VIRUS CONTINUES TO SPREAD MAYBE MASKS
ARE A DESIRED PART OF OUR DRESS and we must remain conscious of the social
distance regulation particularly as we walk.
I invite all to join me wearing a mask.
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
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.
