We are delighted to have received two brand new tandem bicycles from disability Sport NI. These were granted to us last year, but due to Covid we were only able to take delivery of them in April 2021. We are extremely grateful to Disability Sport Ni for their support. The tandems now adorn our upgraded, thermally clad lock-up and will soon be put to good use as we resume our tandem activity.
We are so pleased to announce that tandems will come out of lockdown on Saturday 1st May and then on Thursday 6th May, 6.30-8pm. For more information or if you are interested in participating in tandem cycling contact Lisburn Outlook via the website or WhatsApp.
Lisburn Outlook Committee have agreed to give the monthly quizzes a short break over the summer. With the easing of restrictions, we hope people are able to get out and about more and enjoy the good weather we have been lucky to have recently.
Once the quizzes resume, we will post an update.
The Book Club’s next meeting via Zoom link is Tuesday 8th June at 8pm. Our book this month is Liar by Lesley Pearse. Something to look forward to and I hope it has helped pass the long winter evenings through this third lockdown.
Night Out in Pizzarelly’s
Make a note in your diary for Saturday 26th June as Lisburn Outlook have their first get together this year in Pizzarelly’s at 7pm. The restaurant adheres to covid safety and social distancing, six people at a table, 2 metres apart and numbers of diners are limited. If you are interested in going out for a meal, contact Alberta via WhatsApp or our website. As numbers are restricted, it will be first come, first served basis.
Picnic in the Park
Another date for your diary is Saturday 31st July for a day out in Lady Dixon Park. Planning to do a walk around the park or if you are feeling energetic, you can cycle there on one of the tandems We are hoping for a big turnout as it is an outdoor event and fingers crossed the weather will be good also.
At this stage, the Committee has decided to postpone the tandem holiday until next year. Hopefully we will be out of lockdown and restrictions will not be as stringent by 2022.
All our face-to-face activities have had to be suspended, but we do hope to be up and running again as soon as we safely can. Unfortunately, Lisburn Outlook have not been able to continue with Tandems during this difficult time. Why not remind yourself of the sorts of things we do by following the link
