Secretary wanted

Committee news Posted on 1 April 2013 11:19

Sheffield Group Secretary needed.

Neil Schofield retires as secretary after May this year so we need a new secretary. Although the “job” needs a degree of commitment it can be shared between various volunteers and as Neil tells me it can be very enjoyable, honest. We need to fill this position very soon as it is often the first point of contact. All committee members will offer support and help if required. For further information contact either Neil or myself.


New Web Site

Committee news Posted on 20 November 2012 10:11

Hi everyone

I have put up the new web site. I hope you like it. I have had some very useful help and comments from people I have consulted so I would like to thank them all for the testing they have done.

You get to the web site as before with the address
To get to the Blog go to the News & Views menu and click on The Blog. I think most items are easy to find but have an explore to see what’s where.

If you have any problems with the new site then add a comment to this blog entry and I will try to sort it.

I will be looking for new photos from time to time so if you have one that you think might be useful email it to me. See my earlier email about this for more details. (No slideshow in the end it was giving problems but if I can get it working I may put one on the site.)


PS You may have received this note yesterday, I did not. Unfortunately the blog server went down at about the time I put this on the blog so I don’t know what happened. I have been told that things are now working.

Photos wanted

Committee news Posted on 9 November 2012 11:40

Hi everyone

I am working on the web site and will need some more photos to use for a slideshow on the Home page, similar to the current slideshow, and also on some of the other pages. I also hope to change photos on the web site from time to time to add a bit of interest.

So if you have any good photos showing rambles, local views etc. please can you email them to Just send two or three but let me know if you have more that you think will be suitable. If they feature individuals can you check if they are happy to be on the web site – not everyone wants the pressures of celebrity that comes with such a star turn. Those paparazzi get everywhere!

I don’t promise to use all the photos you send, it will depend on whether they fit with a theme on a page and if they display well on the web. If I get a lot of photos yours may go on at a later date. I will usually have to reduce the resolution for use on the web and may have to crop some where they have to fit a particular format; I will let you know first. If you want to be credited let me know and I will add a caption or tag.

I am looking forward to getting lots of lovely images to add sparkle to the web site. This is not a one-off request; if you have a good photo in the future do send it in.
