Latest Newsletter: Autumn 2017

First, a Huge Thanks to Steve and Ros Sadler for their work on previous walks programmes. Their last programme offered a good mix of walks and walk leaders, and most walks were exceedingly well-attended, the rain before a few walks put just a few off! And thanks now to Graham Gill for taking the bull by the horns and setting up the new Winter Warmer Walks Programme. Again, a variety of walks and leaders on offer, thanks to all for their input.

But most thanks goes to you, the walkers, who make all the preparation worthwhile.

Most of you may be aware by now that the Round Dronfield Walk is being reinstated. It is split into 10 sections; each section being maintained by volunteers either singularly or in a group.

We as a group have agreed to maintain the section for Rod Moor Road to the Bowshaw Farm. The coordinator being Karen Brightmore! We shall try to keep this path clear and use parts of it in at least one walk on each programme.

If you do use this path and notice any problems, please contact Karen and she will try to get it sorted.

It is only right that a local walking group should help keep this 13mile Walk open for people near and far to enjoy!

(There was a clean up session on 23rd September and quite a few members came and give a hand to cut back some of this year’s growth.

Our next committee meeting is to be held Wednesday 11th October in The Green Dragon, and all members are most welcome to come and join us and help run our walking group. 7.00pm, top room.

Some of you may be aware that a section of the boardwalk between the Drone Valley Brewery and Metapic Wood has been lifted for repair. This should be done in the near future as a quote has been accepted by the powers that be at DCC. However these wheels seem to turn very slowly!

The 2018 AGM at the Civic Hall will be held 7.00pm, on Wednesday 8th November 2017. We hope as many of you as possible will attend, whether you are a regular walker, occasional walker of even just a supporter of the group. Please take this as the Official Notice of the meeting. Delighted to announce that local historian David Templeman will present two half hour talks…. these promise to be really interesting, so please come along…

(2018 AGM will be on 6th November)

We have a Facebook presence, if you have a few moments, pop in sometime, and join in.

Happy walking, and leave nothing but footprints!
