Weekly eNews - 4th May

Hello Hikers, Jenny ere! Our lovely secretary is currently making his way back from the Lake District so I’m taking over his job for today :) I hope you’ve had a fab bank holiday weekend & managed to get outside or perhaps watched the Tour de Yorkshire! The email is a little earlier this week because there’s nothing for people to sign up for via email.

Many thanks to everyone who came along to support our video at the Outdoor Societies Film Festival. We won most Creative Film and Biggest Turnout of Supporting Members! Big thanks to our treasurer/whizz kid, Stuart White for making such an awesome video. If you haven’t seen it ch-ch-check it outttttt: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sY4ok2bi7RE&spfreload=10

A big thanks also to everyone who braved the elements and joined us for our Sunday Hike at Sutton Bank yesterday - despite a wet and windy start, spirits were high and the sun eventually came out!

Here is the hiking news for this week.
