Hi Folks.

This could be my last my last message /email for a couple of weeks . I go to Spain a week today for 12 days . I hope to be able to send out an email/update 3 weeks today . 



Today we had a walk round Hemlington Lake to Stainton and back.


Next week the walk will be round Linthorpe Cemetery . We've done this before but this time we have a special guide - an authority on the cemetery - Ian Stubbs is the Chair of The Friends of Linthorpe Cemetery . He will inform those attending the walk about many famous and interesting people buried in this historical place . People who have played an important role in the growth of Middlesbrough. We have agreed to give a donation (cheque of£20)to The Friends of Linthorpe Cemetery . The walks are always a free event but on this occasion we would appreciate a small donation from those attending to offset the donation . 

We park in a small road parallel to Acklam Road behind Acklam Day Nursery . The guided walk begins at 10 am on Tuesday 9th July .

The following week the walk is across Portack Marsh- meeting /parking at the cafe across the bridge at The Tees Barage.This could change depending on the decision of the leader and the group on the day !


The Trip to Sunderland Air Museum is on Friday 26th July . The coach will leave The Parkway ,Coulby Newham at 10am . We still have a few seats available at a cost of £5 . This covers coach fare and a £3.50 entrance fee - I'm afraid the packed lunch orders have now been sent in . The return time is still uncertain . This will be decided on the day depending on the weather . We usually return between 4 and 5 pm . 


The final trip this year will be to York in late November . More details in September/October .

We have started to think about The Christmas Lunch . There is uncertainty about the venue . We are hoping to return to The Municipal Golf Club if a new chef/caterer is appointed .

Prior to that we will be holding our AGM in late October .Date still to be finalised .
