Next walk – Saturday February 27th 2016

The next walk will be the 100th BBC Oxford walk and it’s been decided that we should try and get 100 walkers to take part.  With the publicity that’s planned we could possibly reach our target!  Certainly there will be far more than the usual number.  Obviously planning a walk with 100 walkers in mind is going to take some organising.  Although we had a walk in mind for January we’ve decided it’s not a suitable location for such a large group.

So it's been decided to do the 100th walk on February 27th.  To maintain the integrity of the BBC we won’t do a walk in January.  The walk that was planned for this month will probably be done in March.

I’m sorry that we’re not able to do a walk in January but I’m sure you appreciate the problems with the logistics of organising such a large group and we have to be seen to be accurate in our counting!

See you all in February!
