Range Walking Club
Sunday 16th June 1985-North Wales-Snowdonia
 
The next outing for the walking group will be on Sunday, 16th June to Snowdonia. 'A' and 'B' walks will be amongst spectacular rock and mountain scenery. The 'C' walk will be in the delightful afforested area of Betwys y Coed. The coach will leave promptly at 8.00 a.m. and we hope to return by 8.00 p.m. It could be later. There will be a short 'convenience' stop on the outward journey. Boots are necessary footwear. This information is being sent to you earlier than normal because of half term and the fact that 'contacts' in the 5th and 6th years may not be in school after this Friday due to examinations. The cost of the walks is 3.00 for adults and 2.00 for children. Please indicate on the return slip which walk you are likely to join and return to Barbara Craine, if possible by Thursday, 23rd May. If 'contact' is not in school perhaps arrangements could be made for the reply slip and the acknowledgement slip to be delivered to, and collected from, Barbara Craine direct in the Library by another pupil.
