I am writing this epistle on Friday morning looking out at the rain pouring down and saying a big Thank You to Him upstairs that our ramble yesterday was blessed with wall to wall sunshine all the way. Although it was a bit chilly, at least there was no mud as it had hardened due to the frosts.
We started from Ormskirk bus station the older parts of Ormskirk and up to Aughton having a very welcome cup of tea/coffee at Cafe Vista at the Christ Church Millenium centre. We continued to Gaw Hill reservoir, around to the Nature Reserve where we met Aughton u3a ramblers making their way back to the Millenium centre for lunch. We carried on and worked our way down to the Five Ways pub where we had a lovely Christmas carvery. There were 35 of us and lo and behold the Family history group were already in there for their Christmas lunch so the Five Ways had been taken over by the Maghull & Lydiate U3a.
Our next ramble is on January 17th starting from The Running Horses, Bells Lane Lydiate at 10.30.
