Emails to follow on how to pay for the summer social, and how to book for one off events like orienteering / ceilidh.

If you want to know about cycling with Footloose and are not already on John Lee’s ‘cycling email list’ – please let him know so you can keep in the loop

If you haven’t already- please like our Facebook page – ‘Footloose Walking’. It's a good way for new members to find and contact us. There’s some nice photos on there too



Only one walk was cancelled due to weather, and a few moved to plan B (or Z). There have been some great turnouts

We wish Julie a continued recovery from her skiing accident – she is off crutches now! Hearty congratulations to Simon and Christine!

Please let the committee know if you have any events to publicise for the next newsletter, or if you have any questions.

Best wishes from the Committee
