Our Wednesday night soirées continue throughout the winter. The next one will be on 4th October at 7.30pm at The Swan pub, Horndon-On-The-Hill and continue on the first Wednesday of the month up to and including April.  It's a time to chat and relax with the people that you have walked with during the summer's walk programme.
