Our group meets on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month leaving Palgrave Community Centre at 9.45 a.m. Everyone is welcome to join our friendly group but it is regretted that dogs cannot be allowed on our walks. Additionally Palgrave Walking Group, or its walk leaders, cannot be held liable for any injury sustained whilst on any walk they organise. Please contact Bob Solley on 01379 651706 (mobile 07969916974) or firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like further details.
Car sharing is encouraged to avoid congestion at some rural or public house car parks where the walk actually starts.
Bob's Away Walk for April 17th
As normal we will meet at Palgrave Community Centre at 9.45 for car sharing.
The Walk will start at The Shipwreck restaurant at Shotley Gate adjacent to the Marina, and opposite Felixstowe Docks and Harwich. The walk leads us on well walked footpaths and a little road walking, around the marina just across the Orwell from the docks then back inland behind Shotley gate around and across fields just touching on Shotley village itself then back down to the Stour opposite Harwich we then work our way back along the coast to the Shipwreck where we can enjoy an excellent drink light lunch or full meal. could those who intend to go let me know ASAP so that I can confirm possible numbers to the Restaurant, and also try to ensure economical car sharing. The walk will be between 3 & 4 miles. Whilst most of this walk is on good firm footpaths currently there is a hundred yards or so of very muddy track where a stick would be very useful but hopefully in a months time it may be a little drier.
April 24th - Elaine, Diane and Bette.
A 5.5 mile circular walk around Diss. Starting at the Angel Cafe (can we all arrange to meet there for 9.45?) walking up to Palgrave, along to Wortham Ling & then over to Roydon finishing with a drink in the Cock Inn at Fair Green. It has been pretty muddy as you can imagine so hopefully with a bit of dry weather between now and the 24th is won’t be too bad. There are 2 ‘short cut’ places where anyone who doesn’t want to do the full 5.5 miles can turn towards Diss to shorten it. There are no stiles & no main roads to cross - there would be a short road walk for anyone who wants to make the walk shorter.

Following various conversations over the last few months I am making a suggestion
That during the Summer months we add some additional walks for those that are interested in travelling further from Palgrave on the 3rd Tuesday of the summer months.
These walks will be different from our usual walks in as much as they will take us further afield than our normal walks. I am volunteering to lead the first one in April that will be a short coastal walk followed by a pub lunch and then explore around Shotley Point between the Stour and Orwell estuaries enjoying the views over to Felixstowe Docks and Harwich. So starting now, I am looking for leaders and walks between April and September. sugestions that have been made include North Norfolk Coast, Dedham Vale, and the Broads
