If you wish to join us on this year’s winter walk, please book via email directly with Geoff by Sunday 8th February.
On receipt of numbers you will then be contacted requesting your choice of menu for the lunch to prevent long delays at the Waveney River Centre on arrival.
Carlton Marshes which is a fabulous reserve just behind Oulton Broad, so easy to access for most members. The marsh has recently been extended with a £1m+ fundraising effort and is run by the Suffolk Wildlife Trust. More details here.
The warden, Matt Gooch, is a mate and he is a very good guide. He is prepared to turn out on 23rd for us. I’d suggest we meet at the visitor centre at 11.00, have an hour’s walk with Matt and then head over to the ferry across the Waveney.
Lunch at the Waveney Inn at the Waveney River Centre at 13:00, a few minutes walk up from the ferry. After lunch, we reverse the trip and end up back at the car park. About 30 minutes walk back from the ferry to the car park.
Costs: I would like to suggest a £5/head donation to SWT for Matt’s help – they can claim gift aid and as a very worthwhile local charity. I hope LCC would support their work at Carlton. Then lunch as per menu. The ferry is £3/head return.
Cost for the winter walk without lunch choice will be £8.00 per person.

Covid 19 – Coronavirus
With the increase in figures just released as positive for the above virus and as LCC has the AGM and Fitting out Supper this weekend I am required to bring to your attention the guidelines provided by the Government, World Health Organisation and the NHS which states that:
Older people with pre-existing medical conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes or if you are undergoing treatment which causes you to be immunosuppressed appear to develop serious illness more frequently than others.
Likewise you should also consider the health issues of your immediate family and the potential consequences this may have on them.
The following recommendations should be followed:-
- Hand washing with soap and water frequently for at least 20 – 30 seconds.
- The use of alcohol based hand gel (this will be available at the sign in desk at the AGM).
- If you have a cough or cold please protect others when coughing and sneezing by using a tissue and discarding in the bin before washing your hands.
- Wash your hands thoroughly when you get home.
- Avoid personal contact on greeting such as hand shaking or kissing.
There are currently no reported cases in Norfolk or Suffolk but we must not be complacent.
