We recently had information about this event and were asked to pass it on to our members. If you would like to take part all the information is below.

Do you fancy getting out and about around our beautiful county this spring? Yorkshire Cancer Research and Welcome to Yorkshire have teamed up to bring you ‘Tour de Walkshire’.


With the Tour de Yorkshire cycling race postponed until 2022, Tour de Walkshire is taking it’s place this year and we are encouraging everyone to get out and walk, cycle or run during the month of May. Have a one-off outing or set yourself a challenge over the month and count up your miles as you go along. You could wander around a local park or have a trip out to one of Yorkshire’s beauty spots. You can get involved either on your own or as part of a team. Any money raised will come to Yorkshire Cancer Research so your efforts will help to save lives in our county.

Hazel Bradey

Some of you will already of heard the sad news that Hazel passed away recently.

Her funeral is at 10am on Tuesday 13th April. Due to restricted numbers anyone who would like to attend can do so virtually. We have been forwarded details of log-in but there are quite a few attachments and I’m not sure they will work if I copy and paste details here – in any case, it doesn’t seem to be copying properly. Therefore, if anyone would like to ‘attend’ please email me (judygath@gmail.com) and I can forward the email with the details. The service will not be recorded so will only be available live.

A donation page has also been set up at: uk.virginmoneygiving.com/SomeoneSpecial/HazelBradey
with donations shared between Lymphoma Action and St Luke’s Hospice.

Is it a badger?

Great find by Catia.

I had a look in my book of animal tracks and found the description of Badger paw prints that seems to match Catia’s photos. See the description as well. Badger prints are like small bear prints! The fainter inner toe matches Catia’s photos so it all adds up.

Hi everyone

These links were circulated to the U3A cycling group but I think they will be something to cheer up us Ramblers. I hope you enjoy them.

Clare Balding’s podcast on BBC Sounds includes several episodes set in the Peak District. Here are a few which include David Blunkett, a walk around Robin Hood’s Stride and Black Men Walking which you may remember was the walking group established in Sheffield to encourage ethnic minority men to access the countryside.
