Update on proposed walk Sunday 4th January 2015

Gate Inn Calendar 2014 Posted on Wed, December 31, 2014 12:36:07

Update 13.30 pm Wednesday 31st December 2014

Still only 4 wheel drive vehicles moving about at Troway and the footpaths on Ridgeway Moor and at Ford are very slippery due to ice.

We will continue to monitor the situation and make a final decision about the proposed walk on Sunday first thing Saturday morning.

Cheers – Bob.
