2021 news

Our 2021 AGM was held on Wednesday 3rd November by Zoom. 

The papers are here. We were sorry to say goodbye to Bob from the committee, after so many years as Footpath Secretary. Malcolm has agreed to widen his role to include the footpath work that Bob has done so well over the years. Julie has agreed to be our link with the Friends of Wellington Station and the Friends of Bowring Park. 

We have confirmed that the 2022 Wellington Walking Festival will take place from September 12th to September 18th. See the Festival page for details of our 2021 festival. We would love to incorporate new ideas for 2022, please contact us if you have a great idea, 

 

 See our regular walk routes page for more details of some of our  walks.  

We were fortunate to be able to hold the full programme for the 2021 Walking Festival .

This year we had a mixture of themed walks and just walks.  Many were on the theme of 10. We ended with a celebration of our 10th festival. 

All walks were free.
