This year we hope the snow will not thwart us and our meal will go ahead. Christmas in January was good but we would prefer not to have to rearrange everything at the last minute! 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 2018) there are still 10 places available. If you would like your name added to the ‘List’ please contact Sylvie Pickard. For those members already booked, menu choices need to be made at the end of October – further information will be sent in due course.
