Easter Saturday: Simnel Cake Walk
Simnel cake (wikipedia) On Easter Saturday, 15 April, at 9:30am we will start a walk from Dereham Windmill, the planned route takes us across open land east of Dereham returning via Etling Green and Neatherd, a total of 6½ miles taking about 2½hours.

There are no stiles on the walk, though there are steps up and down to the crossing of the A47, where we cross the dual carriageway via a central reservation. We welcome well behaved dogs, though there are very few open spaces and we do cross a number of roads. We will finish with coffee and simnel cake (alternatives available) at Dereham Windmill coffee shop.

This event will be limited in numbers and tickets cost £6, which includes the special Easter refreshments.

Tickets are now available, contact Ken 07505 426750 (, or any member of the committee.
