This year we are trying something different - we have a choice of two walks, aimed to finish at around the same time to enable us to enjoy our Christmas feast. We can all have a lie in and we will not have to put muddy boots on again as in previous years! The meal is scheduled for around 2.15 pm and we have the use of the room for as long as we wish. Games, quizzes, singing – who knows?
At time of printing (4 August 2017) there are still 6 places available. If you would like your name added to the ‘List’ please contact Sue Latter, 762917/ firstname.lastname@example.org. For those members already booked, menu choices need to be made at the end of October – further information will be sent in due course.
