Actually, that's a good point about the galleries and Walking Papers.  If
walking papers is currently stable, then I reckon a mini mapping party in
the new year, hosted at one of the central galleries would work really
well.

I met one of the marketing people at the gallery in Centenary Square the
other week, not sure if I've still got her business card.

The general feedback I've got sounds like we could run both the Worth
Valley and city centre parties, get the hiking/countryside groups to joýn
us in walking the Worth Valley some time between Christmas and New Year
and do the city centre when we can get some space in the new year.
