Important message about emails


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 28 November 2021 - Circular walk from Kato Gatzea

We will meet at 10:45 a.m. at the harbour in Kato Gatzea and start the walk promptly at 11:00 a.m.

The walk will take approximately 2 hours.

The first half of the walk will climb steadily from the port in Kato Gatzea up through olive groves to a rarely used traditional footpath which will lead us to the railway. We will walk above the railway for a short distance before re-joining it and from there to Ano Gatzea station. The last part of the walk is on the South Pelion trail down to Kato Gatzea ending back at the port.  There are some beautiful views of the Pagasitikos Gulf from various points on the path.

Sections of the path may be muddy, so please wear suitable footwear.

In Kato Gatzea there are a number of places, offering different types of food and drink, which are open at the weekends for those people wishing to have lunch or a coffee at the end of the walk.

Given the current restrictions on eating in tavernas, we will not be arranging a group meal.

We look forward to seeing you there.
