There was an error on the listed start point for yesterday's walk on this site, meaning a couple of walkers went to the wrong place. Although other sources of info (the printed diary, newsletter, Facebook, SMS messages) gave the correct information, I appreciate that many of our participants rely on this site as a central source of information.

Every effort is made to ensure that correct information is distributed but I fell short on this occasion and for this I can only apologise.  To compound matters, as the start point given was about 10 minutes drive from the actual start, the error was not obvious.  It wasn't spotted and brought to my attention until I was stood in the car park at the correct start point, with 15 minutes to the scheduled start, leaving no time for correction.

Thanks to Kasia for bringing it to our attention and also for noting a misdirected link on a future event, which has also now been corrected.

With sincere apologies

Our final walk of 2017 is now over and what a year it has been with DVWG walking over 6,100 miles in 2017.

All that remains is to thank everyone who walked with DVWG this year and helped to organise our events and to wish everyone a merry Christmas and a wonderful new year. We hope to see you all walking with us in 2018.

Important - Website correction

Posted 27/7/2017

It has been brought to my attention that the event page for the Sherwood Forest walk in early August had a glaring error in it.  The walk was advertised as being on Sunday 5th August.  This should have read SATURDAY 5th August and has now been corrected.

Sorry for any confusion this may have caused.
