An exhibition at the Sports Centre where we had a table….this day was set up for the over 55s in the area to seek out new possibilities and activities. We chatted to lots of folk, gave away quite a few leaflets, and have developed ideas for the next walking programme. One of our members was also in the choir that gave an excellent half an hour gig. See if you can spot the member!

Dronfield 2gether

We will be taking part in this year’s Great Dronfield 2gether show, at the main sports hall, Dronny Sports Centre, 10am to 2pm, Tuesday 8th October. Come along, and help person the stand, for this friendly, free and fun event.

who wears short shorts?

as in the old song… Personally, with my legs, I don’t wear shorts. Some walkers have recently been caught out, as we waded through brambles and nettles on an overgrown section of a walk, and some folks were bitten by bugs….

But, of course, it is up to you…..

Opportunity to help others

ARUK Explorer is a 26-mile hike and walk across the Peak District, with the inaugural event taking place on Saturday 21 September 2019 (World Alzheimer’s Day).  Some of your members may already have signed up to take part in the event, but others may just want to be involved because they love walking or running, love the Peak District, like meeting new people and/or because they have personal experience of Alzheimer’s Disease or other forms of dementia and want to help in some way.  If so, we’d love to have them volunteer with us to help make this new event a success!

For more information and to apply, please visit:  www.alzheimersresearchuk.org/volunteering/event-volunteer

However, if you have any queries about this role or need more information to distribute to your members, do please email volunteer@alzheimersresearchuk.org or contact me on my direct number below.

Adopted Path Tidy Up

on Saturday 15th June

The weather will NOT put us off….we will be there, 10am, near the Talbot on Barnes Lane…Bring gloves, shears, secateurs…and we will see you there!

Later….1pm, Saturday….7 of us turned out to chop, cut, prune, rake, tidy….

SO WHERE WERE THE REST OF YOU??? I know you all appreciate nice pathways to walk along safely, but so sad that so few of us put so much effort to help make our pathways so pleasurable for all to walk along.
