More Storms Ahead For Dundrum Sea Wall March 16, 2011| Posted by | Comment on More Storms Ahead For Dundrum Sea Wall Comment

FOLLOWING the huge success of their launch event, Down District Men’s Forum have organised a walk programme for all men aged 18+.  This is the first of many programmes the Men’s Forum plan to run.

To get involved simply turn up at the scheduled meeting place, or if you require transport contact Stephen on (028) 4461 2311 / email:  [email protected]

David Tumilty, Chair of Down District Men’s Forum commented ‘We now have local men on our committee who have helped us develop this walk programme.  Our hope is these walks will engage men in activities they enjoy.  We realise walking is not for everyone – and we encourage men to check local media as we will run various activities throughout the year.  I would encourage any man aged 18+ to get behind the work that we do for their own benefit’.
