    Please make sure everyone is on time before 10:15, look around for me as I will be wearing a bright yellow High Vis Walk leader vest on top of a purple jacket holding a Red Meetup sign.
    Steve has asked me to meet him there 9:45 but I don't expect you there to be there at this earlier time, as I need to discuss with him what needs to organised to prepare for the big day's event.

I will be wearing a bright high vis walk leader jacket, with my purple jacket holding a Meetup sign, Here's hoping I will be easily seen? I Look forward to seeing you all there.

      Gail, see my earlier comment today that Steve as included 10 people in his total numbers including our group in his fully booked event comment on his website.

      October 29, 2013

    • Gail

      Hi Katrina, thanks for the message but I removed my RSVP when I was told it was full so am no longer one of the 10. Hope it goes well.

    Hi Everyone, Just to let you all know Steve, has included in his total numbers 10 people including me, in both our little Meetup group as he wants to have control of small numbers without having to have crowd control assistance from the police. Please don't not hesitate to worry as his message for the whole event, was for the public as well. Please Note the website times say the walk starts at 10.30am so I have said our meeting time would start at 10.15, 15 minutes earlier so we can find each other before hand.
    Please look out for me with the Red Meetup sign, a left arm sling and a bright Yellow 'Walk for Health' High Vis Walk Leader Jacket so you can see me easily amongst the crowd of other people. I will let everyone know my personal mobile number for you all to phone me if you need to towards the end of the week.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
