January 2021

The committee are looking for someone to take over the compilation of the summer and winter walk schedules. This role does not require you to join the MFCG committee although we are always looking for proactive members to help with the running of the group. If you are interested, please contact the membership secretary (details at the top of the page).

After many years of magnificent service our current Membership Secretary is stepping down from her role for a well deserved rest. The MFCG committee would like to hear from any member who would be interested in taking over this important position which involves the administration and control of club membership matters. For more information please contact the MFCG secretary (contact details at the top of this page)

Dear Member I hope this newsletter finds you all well during these trying days. I am sure that a positive and brighter 2021 will soon reveal itself. The current lockdown and restrictions have proved successful with no active community cases and consequently the Government will be easing all restrictions on Monday 1st February. This will again allow the resumption of gatherings in larger numbers. A decision has been made by the committee of MFCG that our walk programme will resume in full on Saturday 6th February. This will allow us a few days grace for all our members to feel confident to move about freely, feel safe and confident in groups after the current restrictions. Leaders will be asked to take a handwritten note of all participants on each walk in case we are faced with the unlikely event of a requirement to track and trace.  This can easily be achieved with cooperation from everyone

The MFCG committee has agreed that our walking programme can resume in full from Saturday 6th February. Leaders will be asked to record all participants in the unlikely event that a track and trace is required. This information will only be required for three weeks and we ask for your compliance with this. Walkers will be most most welcome to wear face coverings if they so wish and socially distancing is also perfectly acceptable.
