Sunday 23rd April 2023 – Club Hike
On Sunday 23rd April club members hiked from Tickenham Village Hall to Clevedon over Cadbury Camp. Armed with handhelds we were able to listen to the RSGB news broadcast and unusually from the Tickenham area contact some club members north of Bristol on the club net. Following the event members enjoyed a Sunday roast lunch in a Clevedon pub.
