- Sunday 17th June 1990-Lake
- Once again we offer you four walks to choose from on our
next outing which is to the Great Langdale area of the
Lake District, superb walking country for all, no wonder
we return there with such variety to choose from! It
takes place on Sunday, 17th June and the coach will leave
school at 8.00 a.m. returning by 8.00 p.m. This will
enable us to take full advantage of the longer days
afforded by June. There will be a short toilet stop at
Burton Services on the outward journey. The cost is still
a bargain at £3.00 for adults and £2.00 for children.
Where else can you have a day out in such beautiful
surroundings for such a small price. Please indicate
which walk you are likely to join and return the slip to
Barbara Craine, School office, by Thursday 7th June.
