    Hi Sue - will this event be 'weather dependent'?
    It's not looking so good for the weekend - I would still be up for a walk in the rain as I do so every day with my four legged friend?

    Thanks for that. Can I ask you something as I am a newbie - when I booked to go on this event it asked me how many places I wanted - is that just for children (as they are mentioned on the invite), or is it for any friends of mine who are not members who might like to come? It might be a daft question but I am going to ask it anyway :) I have got 3 friends who would be interested but I don't want to ask them if they can't come!

      It's for any guests who aren't members - the Meetup Website normally defaults to +2, i've just increased it to +3 on this event, so if you want to add 1 more to make it +3 you can:)
