Lake District Holiday, June 11th - 17th 2018. (cont. from page1) The possibility of this holiday going ahead is rapidly reducing, due to some people who had paid deposits and have now, for whatever reason, decided not to come with us. I know that one member made the effort to find me and talk to me at the last meeting and I fully understand why that couple are now unable to go. I have been in touch with 3 other 'older person groups', but it is too early for me to have received any bookings or stated interest. Are you a member of a group locally who might like to consider coming with us? If so please talk to them about it or give them a copy of the details, or let me know and I will get in touch with them when I return from holiday. I have had several conversations with the Tours Manager at Cairngorm Travel and we have agreed to make the final decision as to whether it's go or not, before the October meeting. Barbara Ward
