Range Walking Club
Sunday 13th March 1983-South Lakes-Arnside
 
The next outing for the walking group is to the Arnside area of South Lakeland, and will take place on Sunday 13 March. Only two walks have been planned because of the terrain and the time of year (roughly to A/B and C standard). The coach will leave the school at 8.45 a.m. and we should be back in Formby by 5.30 p.m. The cost of the walks is 3.00 for adults and 2.00 for children. Suitable footwear and protective clothing should be worn. Please indicate on the attached slip which walk you intend to join and return it to school by Thursday, 3rd March. Details of the walks are given below, Neither of these walks is strenuous.
