North Down Coastal Path - 05 October 2017

We had a great walk along the North Down Coastal path from Holywood to Bangor and numerous variants. Perfect weather for it too but I'm afraid I have no pics worth showing. I recorded a distance of 16.1Km from station to station, almost exactly 10 miles but that included a few detours for refreshments after the walk.

The Hallowe’en charity this year will be the Motor Neurone Disease Association. Brighdin McGurgan, Barbara Lunn and Carol Paul have agreed to organise this. If anyone else has lost someone to MND and would like to help with the organising, please speak to one of them. We are also looking for volunteers to assist with the catering e.g. shortcake to have with coffee before the walk, soup and apple pie for lunch. If you can help, talk to one of the organisers. Thank you to everyone who has responded positively already.

Motor neurones control important muscle activity such as walking, speaking, swallowing and breathing. Motor neurone disease is a rare condition that affects around two in every 100,000 people in the UK each year. It is a life-shortening condition which progressively damages parts of the nervous system leading to muscle weakness, often with visible wasting.
There is currently no cure.

Reminder - after lunch at Gosford on 26 October we will have an Open Meeting
Your oppportunity to have your say.
