At last the menu for the Tuesday Christmas walk (at The Three Merry Lads) has arrived.

MAIN Roast turkey dinner
Pan fried salmon with potatoes and veg.
Mushroom and brie wellington with sauteed potatoes and veg.

PUDDING Christmas Pud with brandy sauce
Yule log with cream and berries
Mince Pie ice cream in brandy snap basket with berries

The normal price for two courses is £15.95 but they are serving us smaller portions for £12.00.

I won't be able to attend the next walk as I will be in hospital but Brenda has agreed to collect envelopes with £5 deposit and meal choices for me.

Hopefully we will have a fun, festive day. Wear your Christmas sparkle and Christmas hat. ( Prize for best hat).

Mr H has agreed to dress as Father Christmas and Mr W will dress as a Christmas elf. They will entertain us with a medley of Christmas songs including their favourite Cliff Richard song "Mistletoe and Wine".

You can text me on my mobile 07880731260 if you are unable to walk over the next few weeks but wish to attend the Christmas walk.

Sheila

p.s this is the most Work I have done on a computer for a long time so please excuse any mistakes.

We need suggestions for a central venue where we can meet on a Friday morning once a month. Any ideas?

This year the Wednesday Xmas Lunch is on 5th December.

John is leading the walk and has arranged a meal with Champs near Malin Bridge at 13.30.

He has asked me to collect menu choices and collect £5 deposit which I will do.

I cannon attach the menu to the blog for technical reasons but there will be 3 courses, including 1 vegetarian and the cost is £12.

Fixit October 1st Monday

I would like to send Tony Andrews our condolences following the recent death of his partner Celia. She died very suddenly a week last Saturday after just returning to Sheffield after a lovely holiday in North Wales. I am away until Saturday, so will most probablymiss the funeral, but if anyone can represent Fixit contact Susan Rushworth to find out when it is. We will go back to The Three Merry Lads on Monday and do a cutback from the path we worked on last down to the bottom. We will also walk a bit of the top path and identify other sections which may need attention. I have in mind a plank crossing over the brook where the path goes very steeply down and up again. See you in the car park with cutting tools at 9.30/9.45 on Monday 1st

COFFEE WITH FRIENDS - NEW VENUE

GeneralPosted by angela Sun, September 02, 2018 17:33:50
We have been happily meeting in Hillsborough every month for a while but wondered about using a more central venue so that everyone could access it for 10.30 using their bus pass, if appropriate.

The next meet up will be at 10.30am on Friday, 28th September at the Benjamin Huntsman on Cambridge Street. (sideways opposite John Lewis.) This should suit most. Coffee is inexpensive and there are free refills.

I will be away in September and may not have the opportunity to put a reminder on this Blog so pop the date in your diary now.

Can I have some feedback from anyone who turned up so that future meet ups can be arranged.

regards

Angela

Coffee Morning

This Friday just gets in as the last Friday of the month so meet up for coffee if you would like to at Temptations, Hillsborough 10.30.

No specific table has been booked as it is not clear what numbers to expect.

If I forget to blog in the future then just turn up - on the last Friday of the month. You will probably see someone you know.smiley

Sept 3rd Fixit

FixitPosted by Jan Mon, August 20, 2018 13:39:39
September 3rd FIXIT will be at Lodge Moor.
We have permission to park at the Three Merry Lads pub car park and they will lend us a wheelbarrow to carry tools down to the path.
We will work to the right and left of the path immediatly below the pub.
The work to be done will be widening, levelling, root removal, a bit of cutback, and some step building? The path is ok in lots of places, but very poor in areas! We will discuss what needs doing before we make a start.
Tools. Spades, saws, crowbar or similar, hammer, drill ( Chris )
We should bag what we remove, as its a very well used path.
I have asked Tony for the materials we need for the steps.
How about very civilized coffee break in the pub.
Thanks Judy suggesting this as a job venue.
