February 5th FIXIT

FixitPosted by Jan Tue, January 09, 2018 13:28:38
I hope that you enjoyed the January break as we have quite a big job on February Monday 5th

We are improving an existing path. It needs a few more steps, a considerable length of handrail, some levelling and some surfacing.

The site is off Twentywell Lane, which is just beyond Dore Station. Go over the bridge after the station and block of flats onto Twentywell Lane. Imediately over the bridge turn right. There is a gate which we will arange to be unlocked, but there is some parking before the gate. 9.45 if you can make it.

We will need the fixit drill and David's drill. Saws hammers, spades&shovels, plastic buckets for transporting hardcore. Dreadlocks Dave will bring special tools

Arnold Laver have donated all the timber for this job.

The Temptations cafe is apparently closed all week so the intended meetup is off tomorrow. The next one will be at the same place on Friday 26th January. Let's make it 10.30 so as to allow use of bus passes for anyone coming from the other side of town.

Next Fixit

Lost and Found

One of the walkers on Tuesday's Christmas meal left a pair of sunglasses at the pub. I will take them with me on Tuesday walks so they can be returned to their rightful owner.

Many thanks to the organisers of Tuesday's Christmas meal for what was a memorable day.

Sheila Orme

P.S. I hope you all have a Happy Christmas.

Coffee with friends

Half a dozen of us met for coffee this morning. smileyWe thought it would be nice to make it a regular meet up, on the last Friday of the month at 10.00am and to open it up to the rest of our fellow walkers. It affords an opportunity to catch up with those of us who may not be out walking regularly for whatever reason.

We will meet at the Temptations Cafe, 181 Middlewood Road, Hillsborough, directly opposite the Secret Garden entrance to Hillsborough Park. The closest tramstop is Hillsborough Park.

Just turn up.
