    Stalls left a lot to be desired but the talks were good, especially Stephen Booth

    Hi I was just wondering where everyone would meet. If I come along it would be my first time to the group. I am not sure if I can make it yet. My children are away for the weekend and I'm not sure if they are back on Sunday morning or teatime. When do RSVPs close and would I still be able to come along if I do find out very late. Lisa :)

      Hi Joanne sorry for the late notice but I'm not going to be able to attend. Went on my first walk in ages yesterday and I'm aching so much. Hopefully I will be able to attend another event soon. Lisa x
