X112 bus walk - Saturday 9 December 2017

Around Ulverston

Meeting points: 

·        Catch the 09.25 bus from Coniston centre

·        Catch this bus at a stop between Coniston and Ulverston

·        Meet us where the bus stops at Booths, Ulverston

Note that walk leaders usually get on at Haws Bank bus stop.  Remember that the bus now leaves Coniston at 09.25 rather than 09.30.

We will take the 09.25 bus from Coniston to Booths, Ulverston and walk to the coast via Next Ness and back via the Fell Foot canal path.  We’ll have lunch at Ford Park café and then walk up the Hoad to the Sir John Barrow Monument, which will be opened up especially for us.  We’ll catch the 15.50 bus back from Ulverston.  You will need walking boots as there are muddy bits.  Please let Jackie know (07776 140607) if you would like to come to make sure there is enough room in the bus and enough space booked in the café.



 


Coniston Methodist Church warmly invites everyone to our Christmas Mince Pies with Coffee at the Chapel on MONDAY 11 December, starting at 10 o'clock (NOT Monday 7 December as in the Parish Newsletter). 
Pupils of the Primary School will be joining us to provide musical entertainment and proceeds will go towards Relief for Rohingya Refugees in Bangladesh.
We do hope you will join us.

Coming of Age: Ruskin’s Drawings from the 1840-41 Tour

Ruskin, aged 21, travelled with his parents through France and Italy on a tour lasting from September 1840 to June 1841.  Working their way along the coast of Italy through Genoa, Florence and Pisa they spent December in Rome before moving on to Naples early in January 1841.  The return journey took them via Rome in March to Florence and Venice, and back through France.  Using the young Ruskin’s spectacular drawings, this exhibition provides a vivid visual account of the Ruskin family’s travels.
