There was a good turn out at our first meeting of 2024 to hear Estelle Nicol's presentation on the Sahara and Camino de Santiago, both very different treks, but equally interesting. 

 

She explained that walking on sand is not easy and both poles, and hats for the sun, are essential.

 

The second trek follows the Pilgrims' route and 100 kms must be walked to gain a Pilgrim's Certificate which Estelle achieved. 

 

The next meeting is on Jan 24th when Richard Corbett will speak on 'Confessions of an Organist who can't play a note'. All are welcome.
