This is just a gentle reminder about the walk on Sunday. The weather forecast is perfect for a walk with no rain and not too hot and I believe the walk is nice and flat.
Do bring your dogs and of course your children as well!:) There will be a yummy cream tea and cake waiting for you on your return.
We do hope there will be a good turnout and remind you that all the proceeds from every function we do is in aid of the next step of the hall renovation.
Best wishes and hope to see lots of you on Sunday
