TUNSTALL (XMAS WALK)
Our next walks from the winter programme will be on a half day, finishing at Timsta;; on Saturday 9th December 2017.
The ‘A’ walk will be led by David Hartley and starts from The Lunesdale Inn, walking up Chapel Lane and through the Churchyard going North past Churchfield House then on to Collingholme Farm and Scalebar Farm where we head for the tiny hamlet of Cantsfield, crossing fields back to Chapel Lane in Tunstall. 7½ miles and 300 ft.
The B/C walk will be led by Norma Nicholls will start on the main road by the Highwayman Pub at Nether Barrow, with a short quiet lane walk onto a farm track to Cowther Farm, Collingholme and Laithbutts, followed by fields and a lane to Scalber Farm to Longriggs Barn and fields and lanes back to Tunstall. 5½ miles with no climbing and a few stiles.
As this is our Christmas walk there will only be 2 walks on the day – an A walk and a B/C combined walk. The walks will be followed by our annual Christmas Meal at the Eagles Head in Over Kellet where we will have a Christmas Dinner (vegetarian option – please advise), followed by a choice of 4 sweets. Tea and coffee will be charged at £1 extra, if desired. The total cost will be £18, which includes £8 coach fare and £10 for the meal. Payment will be collected at the Eagles Head by the Club Treasurer.
The Christmas meal will be followed by our usual Fancy Hat Competition which will be judged by the landlady of the Eagles Head, who will also present prizes. Afterwards, the coach will depart for home.

22nd - 29th September 2017
What a wonderful holiday we had in Menorca - sunshine, sand, sea, sightseeing and walking. We had a lovely hotel with good (and lots of) food. Many thanks to John for all the work he has done in arranging another lovely holiday. Anyone who has taken photos on this holiday, please send them to me so that I can include them in the slide show. If I get a lot of pics, I may be able to do a separate slide show just on the Menorca holiday if we get enough people to support coming to see it.
