The date for the walk is definitely as shown above, not as per the November letter!!
The venue for this year’s Christmas walk is Thursaston on the Wirral.
The walk will be based on the Cottage Loaf Pub, Telegraph Road, nr Thursaston (on A540) where we will be having our ‘after-walk’ lunch. See below for directions and food details.
Make your own way there and, if possible, share a car to save space.
Please meet in the Pub car park at 9.00am for a 9.30 start!
It’s hoped that toilets will be available at the Pub and that you may be able to order your food for lunch before leaving for the walk.
Cars may be left in the Pub car park for the duration of the walk and lunch
