Annual General Meeting of Long Distance Walkers Association

Over the last twenty years the Association has combined its Annual General Meeting with a walking/social weekend. Thanks to a lot of hard work by the Organisers the weekend has become a very popular event. The weekend includes a walking programme which caters for all abilities, a Gala Dinner, Barn Dance, a Speaker and the Annual General Meeting.

Geoff Saunders (MerseyStride) worked wonders consistently over 11 years finding good quality hotels with leisure facilities at very reasonable prices.  Reg Kingston took over from him in 2010 and organised very successful AGM weekends for the following five years – Skipton (2010), Axbridge (2011), Grange over Sands (2012), Malvern (2013) and Harrogate (2014) and they were all very well supported.  Katie Hunt organised AGM weekends at Sutton Scotney in 2015, Buxton in 2016 and Milton Keynes in 2017 and Bill Fear organised the 2018 AGM weekend at Broughton.  Sue Widdowson of Dorset Group is the current AGM organiser.
