- Range Walking Club
- Sunday 13th March 1983-South
- 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.
