If you are organising activities for walkers and would like publicity on this web site, please let me know.
I would also welcome pictures of walking or social events for display in the gallery.
Computer security. I am getting scam emails, apparently sent by fellow walkers, containing unlikely
forms of greeting (such as "hi pwa") and links to unknown web sites. The senders' email addresses have
been spoofed - the emails have not, in fact, come from the named sender. It seems likely that one or
more of my fellow walkers' contact lists (which include both my email address and the "sender's" email
address) have been hacked by criminals.
Do you keep your firewall and virus-checker up to date, by downloading all of the updates you have been
offered? Microsoft in particular send out many security updates every month and so do Symantec,
Norton, McAfee, Kapersky and Zone Alarm, Adobe and others.
If you receive unexpected emails from someone you know, always check with them that they are
genuine before opening the message. Never click on any links in any unexpected emails and delete them
from your inbox immediately.
Leaders and back markers
There really is a dire shortage of leaders, particularly back markers. If you are a regular walker, being a
leader or back marker takes up little more of your time than just walking. You can determine how often
you are rostered and for which walks and we have a well-used procedure for swapping duties on the
odd occasion when a particular commitment turns out to be difficult for you. Please contact Glenn
Goudie (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Brian Wooldridge
(email@example.com) for further information.
You are probably aware that Wokingham is twinned with Viry-Châtillon, a small town to the south of
Paris, not far from Orly airport. As part of the twinning concept, we have been approached to
ascertain if there would be any interest in a small party of our walkers going to Viry-Châtillon for a
weekend of walks, suggested distances of 4-5 miles and 10 miles. Suggested timing is 30th August to
3rd September 2018. I understand that our party would be accommodated as house guests. If you are
interested in the idea, please let me know.
