Coach Ramble Sunday May 12th

GeneralPosted by LizS Thu, April 18, 2019 12:01:44

It is now time to make sure of your seat on our annual seaside trip.

We are visiting the Yorkshire Coast with the usual A and B rambles which will be starting from drop offs near the A 170 on the way to the coast and will progress through moorland, native woodland and farmland to finish with a section of the coast path. Details of the walks are in the walks program. The B walk (8.5 miles leaders Kath Carlile and Will Carlile) will join the coast at Stoupe Beck and go to Ravenscar to meet the coach which will take the group to Robin Hoods Bay. The A walk (12.5 miles leaders Linda Cooley and Liz Savage) will join the coast at Ravenscar and finish at Robin Hoods Bay. There there are plenty of Pubs and 2 fish and chip shops open for refreshment when we return from our walks.

All are welcome to join the coach trips so please share this information with others who may be interested in coming along. It is fine to do your own walks or to come along and not walk.

Places are £13 To reserve a place or for further information please email or text/phone 07711353310

Upcoming celebration

General 2014Posted by Linda Sun, April 14, 2019 17:56:54
Greetings all

An event to enter in your Social Calendar.

Mike West is about to join the distinguished Eight-O Club and, as is our wont these days, we will be marking the occasion with a Do.

The day: Tuesday, May 14th . Time: 12.30. Location: Cosmo in the Peace Gardens.

If you'd like to be there would you please let me know, either by email [] or by phone [2757 612 or 07722 009162]. I will be on holiday from April 17th to May 4th, so if it's between these days when you contact me, please use email as I will be checking it whilst I'm away.

The cost of the buffet is £8.50 per person , but the total cost [including cake etc] will depend on the number of people at the lunch, so I will let you know about that nearer the time.

Hope to see as many of you as possible to help Mike celebrate. Please pass on this information to anyone you think might want to come who does not have access to the Blog.


Fixit May

FixitPosted by Jan Fri, April 12, 2019 13:36:33
Because the first Monday in May falls on a bank holiday and many people have family events, we are planning to work on Tuesday 7th May.

We are back to the stiles project.

Last month we completed 2 stiles no. 6 and 7, putting in handrails in both cases. The stone work on the second needs to be revisited, reorganised and completed.

This month we need to put in another handrail ( location 4) which is the next stile along.

We also need to put in two posts and a short handrail at Low Ash Farm, the livery stables.
If Chris, David Hogg and 1 other could start with this one at 9.30 that would be good. I have already seen and spoken to the farmers.

Location is just around the corner from the dirt track to the coffin route stiles, on Stubbin Lane and off to the right side. The farmers prefer you to park on the grass verge to the right side. It is only a short walk down the farm track to the stile designated.

Everyone else park in the usual place and we will complete stone work on the second stile and work on the third stile along.

I have contacted Tony Andrews to see if there is a job in the area that fixiteers not working on the heavy
stile work could do, I have not yet heard from him.

Coach Ramble 7th April Update

GeneralPosted by LizS Fri, April 05, 2019 13:02:31

The coach will now be departing at 8.00 am from Arundel Gate/Howard St (not from the Penny Black). The A and B walks have been updated following the recces and details are in the walks programme on our website.

Unfortunately when the recess were done we discovered that there will be no cafes open or pubs serving food in Malton at the time when we will finish our walks. We will therefore be stopping at Thompsons fish and chip restaurant on our way back. The menu s attached and if you would like to eat we will take any orders for food on the coach on our way out.

There are still a few places on the coach so if would like to book either email or text/ring 07711353310 Fish & Chip Menu 8pp 2018.pdf

Coffee Fusion

GeneralPosted by angela Fri, March 29, 2019 17:52:37
It was nice to see everyone at Fusion this Morning and thank you Pat for helping with the train tickets.

The next Coffee Meet up will take place on Friday 26th April at Fusion, Arundel Street around 10.30am.

I will be at the Dawlish Walking Festival on that date so will not be at that one.


Monday April 1st FIXIT

FixitPosted by Jan Sat, March 16, 2019 10:15:10
Back to the site off Stubbin Lane again. Jez Kenyion has been buying specialist tools to start work on the Bradfield Heritage Way Stiles Project. He is buying the timber required from Eyers, and we are going to pick the timber up and take it to store at Spitewinter Farm before April 1st. The aim is to complete 3 stile jobs and continue with the coffin path. Bring in addition to the normal cutting and digging tools( if you have them) crowbar, sledge hammer. I will bring the drill and also the sack trolley for moving big stones. Chris Dauris is coming to lead/advise on the carpentry! We will sort out who works on what at the time. It usually sorts itself out without major organisation. Let’s hope it’s stopped raining by then!

Coffee morning - Change of date

GeneralPosted by angela Sun, March 03, 2019 19:56:25
The previous date suggested for March clashes with the 70th Anniversary Celebration of the National Parks. I suggest that we move it to the following week - 29th March.

Hope we are all happy with that.


March Fixit Monday 4th

FixitPosted by Jan Sat, February 23, 2019 20:23:14
We are going back to the coffin trail off Stubbin Lane to reveal the next stretch of the paved way, but at the same time starting the first job of The Bradfield Heritage Trail, which is stile number 7. We will improve the stone work of the stile and put in a grab post to make it more user friendly. Jez from The 40’s Group will be coming and will arrange to purchase the timber needed. Parking as usual on the track which should be nice and dry. Bring digging tools, pick axes and cutting tools, as there are brambles on this stretch. Buy The Sheffield Telegraph this coming Thursday as there is an article about The Bradfield Heritage Trail Project and The Fixit Group, also the funding raised by Terry Howard to finance the improvements to the Trail. We would also like to go to the next stile job to discuss our improvement work in April.
