Programme

 2019 EVENTS PROGRAMME:

Fun-Blue Fox ToyThe key to a successful programme is flexibility … rather than trying to attach a date to everything and then annoyingly have to change it at the last moment (usually the weather has a say, but sometimes family or work commitments take precedence), I am going to leave things open. The exception is when something is booked, and therefore ‘set in stone’, then I will include the date.
So, weather is the main factor, another is I do not always know who is going to be my companion for the day! I will announce the forthcoming weekend’s walk / ride just prior … this will enable me to select one that precisely suits the forecast, circumstances and occasion (told you I’m a genius!!!).
Here, in no particular order, is the programme for 2019 … there is a heck of a lot to get through:
