April - tbc
The Limestone Link Walk. As reported in the last newsletter, the Social Sub-committee is planning a club walk along the Limestone Link which, thanks to Rod Muncey’s legacy, will include free transport to the start. Briefly, the details are: Members make their own way to Arnside promenade, where the coach will pick them up and take them to Kirkby Lonsdale (for the full 13 miles) or somewhere en route (for those wanting a shorter walk). On finishing, we will gather at the Albion for a bar meal before making our own ways back home. Please note that the planned date (18th April) has had to be changed. You will be informed as soon as a new date is confirmed. Seats must be booked in advance so that we have the right size of coach. A dozen members have booked so far but the committee thought that there might be more members wanting to attend so if you are interested please let Clare know
