From the Groups

All group leaders are invited to send in to the Editor (see copy date at bottom) any reports of general interest about their group's activities, and/or specific notices or information for the group members.

Sunday Lunch Group

On a beautiful Sunday morning the group enjoyed a very pleasant trip to Bolton-by-Bowland and lunch at the Copy Nook. The Copy has a wide menu and is not too expensive. We had large portions but not
over-facingly so and most of us found 2 courses quite adequate. The cost for a 3 course meal and coffee was £13, with reductions for the smaller meals. The group-almost unanimously-gave the meal 8/10.

The next Sunday Lunch is on 21 September at 12.30pm, at The Old Hill Inn, Chapel-le-Dale. Please note the change of venue.

Wine Appreciation Group

Our August meeting was hosted by George and Elaine Pattison and was devoted to Pinot grapes. We tried 6 wines, four white and two red-all obtainable from Booth's. Our unanimous "recommended red of the month" was a Chilean wine: Cono Sur 2002, Colchagua; by a majority
vote of 5/3 our recommended white was from Alsace-Turckheim 2001.

Heraldry for Beginners

Those signing on for this course are asked to bring to the first class a ruler and a selection of coloured pencils.

Walking Group

The programme of walks for the forthcoming term is now available.
Copies will be found in the TIC, the Library, and the Age Concern shop after 4 September. Walks will be on alternate Tuesdays and Thursdays and the approximate length of each walk will be stated. Some of the Thursday walks may appear to be rather short but they will probably be of a more arduous nature-each leader will decide on the day if the weather is suitable and it is up to them to cancel whenever they feel it is necessary.

If you are unsure at any time please contact the leader for information.

We have got a very varied programme this term with the services of very knowledgeable people to help us to get the most out of each outing.

Peggy Hewitt will be sharing her love of Haworth with us on the first Thursday with a historical walk in the Haworth area. As there don't seem to be many caffs on the Haworth Moors you are advised to bring
sandwiches! Dorothy and Alan Hemsworth will be taking various walks and helping us to enjoy local history into the bargain.

We are a very sociable crowd and if you haven't been before but would like to join in, please don't be afraid to come along.
