2018/19 Season - It’s a Wrap

Posted 30/6/2019

Well DVWG’s 2018/19 season is over after our final two walks of the season took place this weekend, 69 walks in total this year by a record 152 people.

All the remains to say to say is thank you to everyone who walked with DVWG and also to those who helped organize walks and other events making our 10th year a resounding success.

We look forward to seeing you at our end of season presentation night which takes place on July 5th.

Our first walk of the new 2019/20 season is on Wednesday July 10th.

New Diary Online

As promised, the remaining walks for the next quarter have been added to our events page. The full diary is now available in the usual formats, over in the Download section of the site.  We have kept you all in suspense a little longer than we'd hoped but we hope this jam-packed diary was worth the wait.  Now all we need is the weather!! 

New Events Added

The July to September diary is being finalised and should be online sometime next week.  However, the July walks have been uploaded to the events page to give you all a little more notice of what's coming up in the short term.  We hope to see all stepping out with us soon!

New Walks Online

With the forthcoming festival, work commitments, and other issues, the diary is a little late this time.

However, the quarterly bulletin is now downloadable in the usual formats on the Downloads page and the Events page is stuffed to the brim with three months worth of walking fun.

The last quarter was an outstanding success for Dearne Valley Walking Group and we hope this crop of walks will have both established participants and those who haven't stepped out with us before, reaching for their boots. See you all soon
