"I am sure most of you will be more than aware that we have had very little in the way of rain in the last couple of months (possibly more?) and as a result the ground is like concrete. This will obviously have an adverse effect on fungi so we have reluctantly taken the step to cancel the first three forays on 4/11/18 September. Even if we get rain in the next few weeks it will require an awful lot of it to restore things to some sort of normality. We will obviously monitor the general situation over the coming weeks and if things look favourable we hope to commence on 25 September, so please keep your eyes on this website or and/or your emails.
 
We do apologise for this step we have taken but hope you will understand why it has been made.
 
Thankyou so much for your understanding."
