Tue Dec 18th The walk this week will be led by Terry & Jean around the Llanwern area. The walk is a 4 mile circular walk from Llanwern village.
Parking for the walk is in the car park of the Milton Pub which is opposite the pub.
There will be no meal lunch time that day as we are all having Christmas lunch together that evening.

Those people who will leave from the choir hall - I would say that leaving at 9:15 would be sufficient to enable us to begin the walk at 10.00am.
There are a number of ways to get to the village but some have to navigate a low bridge. The easiest way for those who do not have their own route is to go down the motorway and get off at the Coldra roundabout. Take the first exit-(which would lead to Spytty Road shops). Within a couple of hundred yards there is a left turn -take that and the road will lead to the village.
Tue Dec 18th Strollers Xmas Meal at the Old Barn on 18.12.18. TIME 6.45 for 7.15 start.
Hi Everyone.Here is the latest update on the plans for our Festive Celebrations.
Further to my last note re: The option of a Disco. I only received a total of 24 notes and out of those 18 supported the option and 8 did not.I said that I needed a minimum of 30 in support.
AS SUCH I WILL NOT BE BOOKING A DISCO.
I have given the Old Barn copies of our Menu choices, a draft Table Plan and the last of our deposit's. That leaves one more action from you.
THE PAYMENT OF THE BALANCE OF THE COST OF YOUR MEAL THAT WILL BE £20 PER PERSON.
