Best Walking Wishes for 2011

Wishing a very happy and healthy New Year to all Brittany Walkers and other followers of this blog. We had a great 2010 with lots of good weather luck, new walks and new walkers, so I'm setting the same agenda for 2011.
Have a look at our website ( for recently added information for those whose resolutions include building up their fitness from scratch and improving their health through gentle walking. It really is the best antidote to winter blues.
Our first walk is at Huelgoat on January 11th.

Barbara Leary

I'm very sad indeed to tell Brittany Walkers that Barbara died last week. The funeral is at 1pm on Thursday, 23 December, at Grosvenor Church, Old Station Road, Barnstaple. Family flowers only, but donations to the Marie Curie fund most welcome.
Barbara was a remarkable lady, with a great store of knowledge about plants and the natural world. On our walking holiday in Le Conquet we all greatly appreciated this, as well as her quiet sense of fun and pleasure. Brittany Walks sends heartfelt good wishes to Barbara's daughter Beverly, who has joined us on several occasions in the past.

Xmas presents for walkers

Our website ( has some suggestions for Christmas presents for walkers and potential walkers, or even couch-potatoes ;-). Have a look for some unusual books and practical stocking fillers. If anyone wants to give a partner or friend a voucher for free walks with us (in any multiple you like) in 2011, just ask!
Dates for January and February events are now on the website too.

December Walk and Trip to Rennes cancelled

Very sorry to say that the walk scheduled for December 7 at St Rivoal is cancelled, and also the trip to Rennes on December 14. Apologies, but current and predicted weather conditions make it impossible to be certain of paths and roads that are passable. As I have just spent three days stuck in a centre for 'weather victims' in north Brittany after suffering the worst driving conditions of my life, hope everyone will understand!
