Thu Nov 28th Monthly Meeting

Our last meeting of the year will be a Christmas Celebration.

We will catch the 9.58 train from Southport alighting at Ainsdale and we will meet in the booking Hall on the Southport bound platform.

The walk will be through the pine woods to Freshfield (people can leave here if they have had enough) and on to Formby for the rest of us via Fishermen's Path and the beach.

We can use the comfort facilities on Ainsdale Station but we will not stop for a refreshment break as we are so near home.

At the end of the walk we can go in to Formby Village and have a comfort and refreshment stop before catching the train or bus home.

We will be watching Les Miserables from the front stalls.

Tickets cost £54 and all 24 we have been able to obtain have been sold. However if enough interest is shown we will try and get more so if you want to go please contact Fraser on 576684 a.s.a.p.
