- Range Walking Club
- Sunday 16th June 1985-North
- 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
Map. O.S. 1:25000 Snowdonia National Park
