The walk on Friday 13th
September was led by Brenda Nicholl
13 members attended.
The group travelled by train
and bus to the Rushmere Centre, Craigavon and after a coffee break, the walk
started from the back of the Centre. It
was a beautiful sunny day and the walk round the both lakes was most enjoyable
even though some managed to take a different route than was first planned and
completed the walk by a different path.
However I trust that everyone enjoyed the day and being out in the glorious
sunshine and fresh air.
