Dear Walkers
We are planning to have our next walk on either the 1st or 8th of March. This walk will be in and around Fyne Court and hopefully we will see the snowdrops. It is a longer walk, about 6 miles. Of course there is involvement with a very nice pub. So this will mean setting off at 9.30 and eating at about 1.30 
I have not tried this walk out yet and so I may have other ideas. At this stage can I have your views on whether you would like such a long walk and which of the two dates would suit?
Thanks Veronica

Lunch/Supper Club

At our January meeting a list went round asking members if they would like to join a lunch or evening (or both) Supper club if you missed the meeting or the list can you let us know if you would be intrested and if so in which ?

We will then look to sort out groups of a maximum of 20 ladies to meet every six weeks starting in March to try out different venues for a fixed price three course meal at a maximum cost of £20 a head (not including drinks which would be payable individually)

Each time a different member of the group would be responsible for arranging the next meal - (dont let this put you off as wouldnt be compulsory)

So far the list proved to be very popular so we are also looking for volunteers to arrange the first supper/lunch club meals and lead on passing on the role etc ...... so please let us know if you would like to do this as we only have Tracy Heppenstall at the moment and I dont think she can eat out and arrange all of the groups !!
