- Range Walking Club
- Sunday 17th January
- A very happy and healthy New Year to all our readers! At
members request we are reintroducing a January walk - the
first one for six years. Our venue is the Pendle area of
Lancashire, famous for its historical links with
witchcraft and the occult. All walks will be variable
dependant upon the weather on the day, but unless we are
favoured with a hard frost the going will be soft, wet
and muddy underfoot on all walks. We leave school on
Sunday, 17th January 1988, at 8.00 a.m. prompt and should
be back by 6.00 p.m. The cost of the walks is £3.00 for
adults and £2.00 for children. Toilets are available at
the start, Whalley, and finish, Barley, of all walks.
Please indicate on the attached slip which walk you are
likely to join, and return it to Barbara Craine at school
by Friday, 8th January.
