Outings and Holidays

A word from the Outings and Holidays Coordinator

As Covid restrictions are slowly being eased, a cautious but positive approach has been taken in arranging our Outings Programme this year.

Those of you who know me realise that I’m fond of walking. But the Outings Programme (see further down the page) tries to cater for everyone's interests. However we can’t satisfy everyone. As the old adage says ‘You can satisfy some of the people all the time ------ but you can’t please all of the people all of the time’.

So if YOU would like something to be considered for the next programme please let me know.

Peter Hetherington.
