For those who missed the Conference/Get Together you missed a great weekend of debate, interesting and thought provoking talks together with an impressive Conference dinner and entertainment. (A more detailed report will follow shortly on the Get Together page). It was good to see many towns bringing display boards publicising walking leaflets, television features, childrens’ walks and overseas presentations. It is a great inspiration to see the ideas and initiatives developing from towns in the network.
The organisers put in a great deal of hard work to make the Get Together in Norfolk a great success and now next years’ Conference/Get Together will be in Chepstow with some mouth watering events.
