The December walk will be on Friday 28th, starting at Thelma Cook's beach hut at 10.30am. Thelma will be supplying the usual Mulled wine and Nibbles, cost £1.50 per person. Afterwards there will be a short walk before having Fish and Chips at The Coastguard Cafe at around midday.
So if you want to blow away the cobwebs after Christmas then you are most welcome to join the walk but please let Thelma know if you are interested in the Mulled Wine etc. and the Fish and Chip lunch by the 18th December.
Walks for the New Year will be planned at a luncheon meeting on January 7th at a venue to be announced and will be listed on the website
