Alton Webteam: May 2017
Date for your Diary!
The next of the seasonal walks will take place on Tuesday 30th May and will follow the now traditional pattern. We'll meet at 10am, go for a walk of around four miles in pleasant countryside, and end up at a suitable hostelry for a bite of lunch. Watch for the details on the noticeboard in the foyer.
If you would like to eat with us, you'll need to put your name on the list, so that we can make a table reservation; if you would like to join us for the walk only, there's no need to sign up — just turn up on the day!
And, of course, if you would rather not walk, just sign up for the lunch!
