For information about previous trips see our blog, The Naturalists' Notebook
Saturday 14th December 2013, West Kirby for Christmas
Type: Outdoor meeting, make your own way there.
Where we are meeting: Names to David Bryant by 7th December please, when time and venue will be confirmed. (This mystery about the destination is to prevent people turning up without booking, and causing confusion about the numbers pre-booked at the restaurant.)
Cost: Free of charge, but pay for your meal.
Do I need to book? Yes, ring David Bryant on 0151 523 5240.
Are toilets available? Toilets available at the destination.
**Details of the programme for 2014 will be loaded in January 2014**Coaches are to be paid for on the day, on the coach. Coach bookings must be paid for unless cancelled at least 7 days before meeting.
Check transport arrangements carefully and don't be late!
Bring waterproofs, binoculars, a packed lunch, a flask, and a waterproof pad to sit on in case we have to eat lunch on the grass.
The coach usually gets back to Merseyside between 6pm and 8pm.
Visitors are welcome at all indoor and outdoor meetings. They are also welcome on coach trips, subject to there being room on the coach, and must be booked with a member.
Walking grades: "Easy", "Moderate" and "Strenuous" are appropriate to the standard of MNA - a naturalists' group. They are not comparable to walking club classifications, being considerably easier. On most coach and all car trips, walks return to the starting point and therefore members can walk a shorter distance if they wish. However, if a trip is noted as a Linear Walk, members will need to complete the full walk from point A (leaving the coach) to point B (coach meeting point).
