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 19th October at 8pm. This months read is Rock, Paper, Scissors by Alice Feeney. Available to buy on Audible.
Picnic in the Park
Unfortunately, due to circumstances, we have had to postpone our picnic in the park this Saturday 31st July in Lady Dixon Park. Watch this space for updates on this event as it has proved popular and we hope to rearrange it for August.
Lisburn Outlook are hoping to get a group together to attend this year’s Balmoral Show which is on 22-25 September. Precautions have been taken to provide wider walkways, stalls placed further apart, etc as in accordance with covid rules. We have decided to have one guide per blind or visually impaired person. Tickets need to be booked in advance. If you are interested please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or on 0776602496 before 10 September.
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.
At last we are slowly coming out of this third lockdown and some of our activities have resumed. Tandems are twice weekly on a Thursday and Saturday. Also Coffee Mornings are up and running and it is fantastic we are meeting face to face. Why not remind yourself of the sorts of things we do by following the link
