Wednesday Meetings, Weekends Away & Other Events

January 2021

Wednesday 6th January

Virtual Pub Night

Dave P

Or evening tea soiree, if you need to recover from the excesses of New Year.

There might be a very informal trivia quiz to keep your brain ticking over.

Doctor's Pond, Great Dunmow

Sunday 10th January

Great Dunmow Walk

Dave P

A 9 mile circular walk exploring the countryside around Great Dunmow and village of Stebbing.

Please contact Dave for more details, and see this advice.


Wednesday 13th January

Committee meeting

Join us on Zoom - we're looking for ideas for 2021.

Wednesday 20th January

Sign Language

Steve C

Learn a few basic British Sign Language phrases to tide us over for a few more months in face masks.

Although the range of BSL is enormous, a little can be leaned quite quickly. We'll concentrate on phrases likely to be useful for walkers.

Sunday 24th January

Galleywood Common Walk


Contact Cress for meet up details if you want to come. It will be a walk of about 10 miles, taking in West Hanningfield and Margaretting Tye via part of St.Peter's Way. Please see this advice.


Hawse End and Derwent Water

Wednesday 27th January

Lakes through the Decades

Dave P

Until 2020 CYHA had been to the Lakes virtually every year in our 52 year history. Dave has been on at least 30 of these, so that's tons of material for a slideshow down memory lane. The wet years, the snowy years, members old and new. And of course we'll be whetting our appetite for a trip at Easter. Fingers crossed.

Note: Unless otherwise stated, Wednesday events start at 8.30pm on Zoom. Please get in touch for joining instructions.
