New Year Treasure Hunt 2011 – Budleigh Salterton (provisional)

 

Leaders prefer to know who is interested in their event by 10.30am latest on the Sunday of the walk, preferably before if possible.  If there are no takers, they can then make other arrangements for their day.

 

Car share is advantageous when travelling longer distances, and will be arranged where possible.  The cost of travel and parking can then be shared. 

 

We try to get away promptly in the winter months to complete walks before dusk so allow plenty of time if you wish to have a drink or meal beforehand.
