20 seconds!

Giles Brandreth has recently been learning 20 second poems. He reckons each verse of The Owl and the Pussy Cat takes 20 seconds. He’s right – I timed them! Much more fun than Happy Birthday!
Stay safe and well, everyone.

I think the word is getting round quite well now but this is just to confirm that June came home on Tuesday (not via the Northern General!) and is doing very well. She’s walking around her house with just a stick and is her usual cheery self!
She’s looking forward to our trip to Patterdale.

I had news on Thursday that June Robinson had broken her femur over Christmas. I quickly sent her a card from everyone but had no details. However her friend (also June) has just phoned me and apparently she broke it on Christmas Eve but she seems to be her usual indomitable self and is apparently ‘fine’!
She is being transferred to Northern General sometime next week and June no.2 will let me know when they know when that will be.
I just thought you’d all like to know.

Wednesday Christmas lunch

Uncategorised Posted on 18 November 2019 21:33

Some of you may know that I’ve been shut out of all my techy stuff for a while – I’m now back up and running.
I’m going through 3 weeks worth of emails – and most texts haven’t arrived so if you’ve sent me any bookings for the Christmas lunch on Wednesday 4th could you resend them/ If you go to and look at the festive menu you could send me your choices. (Email:, text: 07557272559 or home phone (answerphone if I’m not in): 0114 2295476).
I need them by Wednesday evening (I’ll be walking on Wednesday) so if I don’t see you to collect your £5 deposit I’ll put it in until I see you.
Sorry about all this – it’s been a nightmare!!

Tomorrow’s walk

General Posted on 28 January 2019 20:03

Hi Tuesday Ramblers,

Unless the weather forecast for tomorrow deteriorates then I intend to do The Fair Weather Walk. This involves going on to Wharncliffe Chase which is very exposed. So wrap up warm. We will be having our lunch before or after the Chase, in a sheltered spot.

When catching the tram bus from Middlewood Tram Terminus at 10.26 ( hopefully)Make sure you catch the SL1a bus as this goes straight along the main road at Deepcar. We will be catching the bus at Oughtibridge.

It’s been pointed out to me that, in my last blog, I put the last date for ordering Sunday’s Christmas dinner was 7th September – in which case we’re all too late!

I don’t know what calendar I was looking at because I got it completely wrong anyway – we do, in fact, need to order by Wednesday 5th December.

Sorry about that.

Christmas Dinner

Sunday Christmas dinner, 16th December.

I’ve had an email back from Little John – the deposit will be £5 and the last day to order will be Wednesday 12th September.

Susan will be collecting names on 7th and 14th November then I’ll take it back again. Or you can email me –

Sorry, I can’t get the menu to open in any other form on the blog. If you’re not out to see it please email me and I’ll email you a copy.

Sunday Christmas Dinner

General Posted on 23 October 2018 20:29

Yet another date to save! As you will have seen in the newsletter the Sunday Christmas dinner will be on 16th December at Little John in Hathersage. The walk will be led by Dave Jefferies and will finish about 4. We expect to eat between 4.30 and 5 o’clock.

The menu is below. I will start taking orders tomorrow but will then be away so Susan will take over from me for a while. I am waiting to hear from them about the deposit.

Sorry the image is not very clear – I’ll bring some printed ones out.
