Please Note:

Punctuality is important, as there is no half-way point to join; the Police Station Stairs are completely non-functional at present. The low tide (1.1m) is forecast for 12:06pm.

Sturdy footwear is necessary.

If anyone cannot find the initial rendezvous or finds themselves delayed, they can contact the organizer on the CoLAS mobile phone:
07964 694128 (on the morning of the walk only)

The event will proceed in case of drizzle, but the foreshore walk maybe called off if conditions are too inclement. CoLAS will be at the meeting place regardless of the weather forecast; if conditions are too dire, we will substitute with a stroll via the streets.

Numbers are limited, and places can be booked through Eventbrite below:
