In light of recent Scottish Government guidance concerning the spread of the latest Omicron version of Corona virus, the Committee has reluctantly agreed that we should cancel the next scheduled walk on 9 January 2022. Instead, we will rearrange this walk to take place on 6 February 2022, when by this time we should have more information about the new variant and any further safety measures required. Also, there was uncertainty about the Bennachie walk taking place due to closure of paths and trails because of tree damage during recent storms. Sadly, we have taken this decision for health and safety reasons but look forward to your continuing support when we meet again to resume our walking activities. Meantime, best wishes for the festive season and ensure you stay safe and well.
