I am unable to go to the showroom to see the Follies on Thursday evening with Angela, Lynn and Dorothy. The ticket is already paid for, and they are meeting at 5.30 for a bite to eat beforehand.
If anyone would like to go in my place please contact Angela Coles
Thanks Jackie

Get together Tuesday 31st October

General Posted on 24 October 2017 17:15

I have spoken to the Weatherspoons staff at the Waterboard and they have asked if we could go earlier at 12.0pm as it often gets very busy later.
Not many people have replied but just turn up it should be OK. I have booked for tables in my name if you ask on arrival.
Please pass the new time on to anyone you are in contact with.


Get Together

General Posted on 14 October 2017 17:57

Hello Everyone
At the recent leaders meeting I volunteered to arrange a lunchtime get together, as I know there are some people ( including me) who have not been able to walk with the group recently.
So how about the Weatherspoons pub The Water Board in the centre of town near John Lewis.
Hopefully the venue will suit most people. I thought Tuesday 31st October at 1.0pm.
Let anyone know who might like to go, and let me know if you can, as I may need to book if there are more than a few.
Thanks Jackie

Walk Sunday 2nd July

General Posted on 29 June 2017 17:13

As there’s no current walk listed,
I will be doing an ‘informal’ Walk on Sunday. Informal because I have not recced it.
The walk will be from Stannington bus Terminus Nethergate via Rivelin Rough, Wyming Brook, Stanage Edge, down to Hathersage. I may walk up to Fox House if we have the time and inclination.
There is a number 81 bus from Angel Street leaving at 0857 and arriving at Nethergate at 0923. I will meet the bus ar Nethergate.
Not sure of the exact route and mileage approximately 11/12 miles would be a rough guide.
It would be great if anyone wants to join me.

Sunday Christmas Meal

General Posted on 15 September 2016 16:09

Does anyone have any ideas/ recommendations for our Sunday Christmas meal? I have tried the Spitfire but they are booked up with a birthday do. It would be good to have a location in a different area than the northwest(Oughtibridge) where John Taylor has booked the Wednesday meal. Let me know ASAP of any suggestions, remembering that we need to do if possible a circular walk from the venue.
Thanks Jackie Dauris
