Five members of Norfolk Area Ramblers were at the Wayland show yesterday to promote the work that we do. Thanks to all of those who dropped by to buy the books we publish and to our members who came to say hello.
Our area chairman enjoyed the day greatly! Thanks to Richard and all the others who were volunteering at the show, especially Peter who enthusiastically arrived early to put the new marquees up himself.
We were also pleased to discuss the path clearance work we do with many visitors to the show. There was lots of interest in this and thanks to those who gave donations to help us continue our efforts to clear paths in the county.
We also had time to go and look at the snakes in the reptiles tent…..
And finally, thanks to the nice people at the Frames and Conservatories Direct stand opposite for the free ice lollies which were a great boost during the hot weather!
Come and see us at our next show, which is Aylsham Show being held on 29 August 2016.
In addition to the Sandringham Show, mentioned in a separate blog post, we also had a stand at the Worstead Festival this week. There was a great attendance and atmosphere at the festival, and we were delighted to welcome hundreds of people to our stand.
We were giving away balloons, pens and badges as usual! But, perhaps more importantly, we wanted to hear questions about the paths network and our work, and we’re delighted that so many people wanted to engage about that. We perform our own path clearance now, and we’re always keen to hear about footpath problems in Norfolk that we can try to fix.
We also had an offer of buy two books for £5 to help support our path clearance work. We’ll be at the Wayland show on 7 August 2016 – and we hope to see lots of people there!
Thanks also to our volunteers who manned the stand over the weekend 🙂
Norfolk Ramblers had a stand at the Wayland Show today and many thanks for all those who came to visit us, both members and those interested in joining.
We were able to help with questions on footpath problems and how to report issues, as well as offering details on our range of walks and all of the local groups in the Norfolk area. In addition we were also able to offer badges, balloons and pens to lots of children (and adults!).
We were also situated opposite the main ring so had a good view of the brave motor-cyclists in their display team! We were lucky with the weather and will hopefully be attending the show again in August 2016.
Thanks to Clive, Adele, Julian, Peter and Sarah for their help manning the stand!
