Rick and Caryll Ackroyd are the current Wednesday hike organisers. However, it all started a number of years ago when Jean Williams and her husband, Clive, retired. Walking was advised for health reasons and midweek hiking provided them with an option to get away from the weekend crowds, and enjoy a more relaxed hike in the country. The Wednesday walks are generally more laid back than the Sunday hikes and often a venue is chosen where we indulge in a snack lunch or braai. Slow and moderate groups are formed as required. These midweek hikes are highly recommended, so come and see for yourself.

The Wednesday hikes organiser sends out, at the end of each month, an email regarding the following months events, giving directions, name and contact details of the coordinator, the fee and other relevant info.

This email goes out to JHC members only, but non members can request a copy by emailing the club administrator on
