Tuesday July 20th:
  Join us for a circular walk round Horsey, led by Nigel and Christina, ending at the Nelson Head Pub for lunch. The walk is just over three and a half miles on level footpaths. It can be muddy if there has been rain so please be prepared. The walk covers a variety of landscapes and habitats and we will see lots of boats, wildlife and other items of interest. The Nelson Head do not take lunch time bookings but they will make sure they have sufficient staff on duty. This why booking with us is essential. Meet at the Nelson Head, The Street, Horsey, NR29 4AD at 9.45am for a 10.00 start. We will be back at the pub by 12.00 for lunch. If you don’t want to walk, the pub is open from 11.00am.
This will be a our first pub meeting after the pandemic and we can’t be sure what rules will apply at this stage. We will be eating outside and will probably have to be at several small tables. Remember to bring a face covering. Please keep an eye on the Covid rules as these will probably have changed by that time. If you just want to walk and not come to the meal. that is OK.
To book, send an email to nigel@womackherons.org.uk Please say how many people, and if you are walking, having lunch, or both.
