Our Watch Point season approaches so Emma Wood, who's organising them this summer, will be putting the details on this blog in a week or so's time. The first Watch Point is on Saturday 28th May with more on the following Wednesdays and Saturdays into early July. Hope some of you can get along to one or more.
