2812 walk at cannock chase
« on: December 04, 2015, 10:50:05 AM »
Dreading that quiet week after Christmas - with bank holiday falling on Monday 28th December come and join a lively and friendly group of single parents (and kids and dogs!) having a walk and chat.

Meeting at the visitors centre at Marquis Drive (free parking if you park off road when you enter) at 10am. There is a park, loos and cafe there. We'll head off and amble to the visitors centre at Birches Valley where we'll have lunch and the kids can play at the park etc. before heading back to Marquis Drive.

All map readers welcome as my routes are normally varied! but we get there in the end. Wellies/ walking shoes and all weather clothes needed.

Blow away post Christmas blues and walk off the chocolates with a friendly group.

Sounds like a good idea - I'll be down south by then but hopefully also getting some fresh air after the Christmas rush is over.

Lots of views on this ... don't be shy, make a note of the date and see how you feel nearer the time. A great icebreaker it you're thinking of booking a trip/event with SWK and chance to meet other single parents

Ssshhh!!! You're not selling this very hard are you?  You'll also have to mention that you'll probably make a fashionably late arrival after parking in the wrong car park?

All part of the fun!

haha! this is true  ::) I'm a regular at Cannock Chase (in a walking/cycling sense) so at least know the time it takes to get there and where to park ... phew! so don't be shy SWKers come and walk off a few Christmas chocolates. I even promise to be there on time  ;D - will post what I'll be wearing nearer the time (and once I know the weather) so you'll easily spot me

Actually last time I met swk I was early and in the right carpark. . The rest of you arrived late and parked in the other car park....

But then I did get lost and arrive late to the pub afterwards so I guess I'm not completely reformed  ::)

Hoping to catch up with you ... not sure how many children I'll have with me (if any).
Two things we give our children: roots & wings

No problem - with or without kids is fine - we can always loan you some  :)

About 20 people so far...

Meeting at the park at 10am Monday. It's a bit muddy but still OK. I'll be in a green coat with a black dog. Please post if you're thinking of coming so I know who to look out for

We had a great walk yesterday - lovely weather and a good turn out - 10 adults, 5 kids and 3 dogs! Thanks to all who came especially those for whom it was their first SWK meet.
