Path maintenance

Annual General Meeting 2019

Path Maintenance - Thursday 28 November

Weather permitting we will meet this Thursday at 10.30 at the large junction on the Tsagarada road when it turns for Milies (called in Greek : Horeftra) and will start cleaning the South Pelion Trail section from here to Neochori.

We will bring along some tools for cleaning, but if you are able to bring your own tools (loppers, secateurs, rakes etc) that will also help as we only have a limited supply.

Please wear suitable footwear and clothing. 

Please note that the cleaning will be cancelled in the event of bad weather, please check with Chris if you are unsure on 6945 575360.

The Annual General Meeting was held on Sunday 6 October at the Museum in Horto. Minutes will be available shortly and will be found here.


Sunday 1 December - Circular walk from Lafkos

We will meet at the car park in Lafkos at 10:00 am.  

We would set off from Lafkos on the path towards Hondriammos later taking an uphill track to the Mikro road. We would follow a section of asphalt, earth road and footpath to Agios Spiridon monastery.  We would return to Lafkos by woodland path and some open sections. 

The walk will be 3 - 3.5 hours, mostly on earth roads.

After the walk we will eat at Aphrodite Taverna in Lafkos square.  The food will cost 10€ per person with drinks to be paid for separately.

PLEASE NOTE: If the walk is cancelled at short notice due to the weather, then anyone who has booked to eat should please turn up for the meal as the taverna is catering specially for us and so we will be charged for all the meals we order. 

Please confirm by email before 19:00 on Friday if you will be eating.
