4 MarPlanning Meeting at the Masonic Hall11:00
Many thanks to all leaders who made the last programme a success. I hope we will again get a full programme for Summer. If you have not led before and would like help there are a lot of group members willing to help. I hope everyone will do their bit to keep the group going well. To enable me to produce a programme for A, B, and C walks from the start of April to the end of September I will hold a planning meeting on WEDNESDAY 4th March at 11 o’clock at the Masonic Hall. Please bring your walks to this meeting. If you cannot attend but can offer a walk please e-mail at agbwalking@uwclub.net .

If you have anything you would like discussing at this meeting please let me know beforehand so the committee can talk about it at their meeting before the main meeting.
