Coffee date with Hazel

General 2013 Posted on 9 January 2014 20:40


I have spoken to Hazel this evening and we have arranged to go to Loxely Garden for coffee on Monday (13th Jan) at 10.30am.

We would be pleased to see anyone else who is able to make it for a chat, they do very nice cakes as well!


Alcohol free month

General 2013 Posted on 2 January 2014 12:08

Happy New Year to all. I have decided to give up alcohol for one month starting today, until February 2nd. If you would like to give me a donation now or after the 2nd February that would be very kind. All money raised I will donate to cancer research. I have asked Robert to be the watchful eye! Angie

Walk on Thursday

General 2013 Posted on 31 December 2013 17:38

If anybody fancies it, I am doing a walk from Stannington Nethergate to Fairholmes, on Thursday 2nd.

Jackie is on grandma duties.

About 13miles, (21km) some heather bashing, (moderate/strenuous).

Buses, No 11 from Arundel Gate/Charles St at 9.07 to arrive Nethergate 9.34

No 62 from Hillsborough Interchange at 9.10 to arrive Nethergate 9.25

I will set off when the No11 arrives.

Cheers Chris.

Happy New Year

Just to wish all our walking friends a very Happy New Year, especially thinking of those in far away places Linda, Carol & Peter.

Jackie and Chris smiley

Thank you

Thank you to everybody for all your visits, cards, presents, phonecalls and emails (even the ones that contained material offensive to small furry minorities (yeah, yours, Chris)). Anybody trying to text- I still can’t get a proper mobile signal in Crookes! I won’t be doing a full walk but might catch you anywhere along a bus route just to say hello. Thanks again and Happy New Year to you all.

The Barrel

Just a quick update. Have located the parent company: Enterprise Inns at a Birmingham address. My letter of complaint has been acknowledged. They said they would forward it onto the Area Manager for investigation.

A very happy Christmas to all my walking friends

Success to report

Just heared that the very long ginnel we cleared in Lodge Moor will have Rights of way signs put up at both ends, which makes our efforts worth while and lasting. Thanks again everyone. January 6th Monday our next ‘fixit’ is back at Totley finishing off.
