Latest Newsletter: Autumn 2019

DFBS News; end of the 2019 Summer Walking Season

No, that isn’t the headline, it just sounded a tad cold if I had said Autumn Newsletter, as it is still so nice and warm and sunny!

Anyway, the Summer Walking programme draws to a close, thanks very much to Jane Smith for organising the programme. The Pea and pie supper walk had a record 45 taking part….can we beat that? Plus of course, huge thanks to our walk leaders over the season: without you, there would be no walks. We always need walks leaders, it is a pretty easy job, even I can do it, so please, have a think, and if you would like to lead a walk, let us know.

Attached is the 2019/2020 Winter Walks programme. Many thanks to Graham Gill for setting this up again.

More thanks: this time to John Ellis, who has done some superb quizzes after some of our events..

More dates for your diaries…

Tuesday October 8th, 10am – 2pm, the Great Dronfield Get2gether: in the main sports hall in the civic sports centre: we have a table booked, come along and chat about DFBS to the visitors….update: a successful event, and one of our members even entertained the gathered crowd, by singing to us with the Dronny Choir!

Wednesday October 30th, the AGM of the society…7.30pm, Dronfield Civic Centre…Please come along and support us, the speaker Dr. Peter Hayward MBE who will tell us all about FODS: the Friends of Dronfield Station. This, of course, will be after the formal business of the evening….where we will be collecting subscriptions (please!), electing committee members…more needed… etc. For instance, I have been the website updater for years, and it would be great if someone else would please take this fairly easy but rewarding job on. Don’t flannel me by telling me I am doing a great job; step up into my small shoes!

Looking forward to later in the year, and the Dronfield Christmas Tree Festival, once again we will be taking part, help needed to decorate the tree, man the tree, undecorate the tree….

Please note that Adrian Slome (DFBS treasurer) has a new address: 127, Green Lane, Dronfield S18 2FJ.

Keep looking at the website, join us on the Facebook page, and keep walking!

Next committee meeting, all welcome, we meet at the Green Dragon…Monday 30th September, 7.00pm
