Important message about emails

Walks

From time to time, individual members have mentioned that they at some point stopped receiving emails from us with information on walks etc. With the walking season now starting, we hope that the following information will allow anyone affected to find the cause of this problem and resolve it.

A) Depending on the email service provider, not all messages received will be sent to the INBOX. Most people are aware of the SPAM / JUNK box, in which missing messages are sometimes found.  However, it is also possible for them to end up in other categories, such as BULK, SOCIAL, UPDATES, FORUMS, PROMOTIONS etc. If you search in one of these, you may find your missing emails and be able to adjust the settings so that they are sent to your INBOX in future!!

B) Some members have found that they have accidentally clicked on the “Unsubscribe” button at the bottom of the email and for privacy and security reasons we are unable to re-subscribe anyone who has clicked on this link. If you think this may have happened in error, please click here to re-subscribe to the mailing list.

Work Parties & Forthcoming Events

During the current Coronavirus situation, no work parties or events are planned but will resume as soon as the restrictions are lifted.

Sunday 20 February - Circular walk from Kato Gatzea

This circular walk is approximately 8.5 kms long and 220m elevation.

We will meet at the port at Kato Gatzea, where there is parking, at 10:45 a.m. and the walk will start promptly at 11:00 a.m. 

We will leave Kato Gatzea on a short section of the South Pelion Way towards Ano Gatzea.  We will cross the road to Ano Gatzea and climb quite steeply on a local paved road to join the railway. The walk will then take us along the railway under the Aghia Triada Monastery and above Ano Gatzea for approximately 45 minutes. From the railway we will descend on a traditional kalderimi to a local cement road which leads through olive groves and behind the boat yard at Kato Gatzea back into the village. 

There are a number of places open in Kato Gatzea at the weekends that serve coffee and food.  Given the current restrictions on eating in tavernas, we will not be arranging a group meal.

If you would like to pay your subscription for 2022, you will be able to do so at the end of the walk, so please come prepared!  If possible, please send your details by email (info@friendsofthekalderimi.org) so that we can have your receipt and membership card written out ready for you to pay.

We look forward to seeing you there.
