lost jacket?

FixitPosted by Jan Sat, September 07, 2019 18:07:45
A brown jacket was left at my house at the fixit party on the 31st. No one has claimed it and I thought maybe it was intended for the stall.
Let me know whoever left it
All the other left over items will go toOxfam in a weeks time, unless I am contacted to say the owner wants them back!
Some people put money in the fixit boot and I will be handing that onto the new co-ordinator, when it is confirmed who is taking over.
The Bradfield tools are now housed at Terry's house.

Radio 4 Open Country - Jarvis Cocker's Edale


This morning Open Country episode had Jarvis Cocker talking about the “Be Kinder” trail which was created to mark the 1932 mass trespass on Kinder Scout:

He had some quite interesting companions, from Maxine Peake to Magid Magid!

Just some quotes:


Maxine Peake: “...the countryside is a great leveller…”


Gordon Miller, a local former ranger:

“Kinder is one of the last few English wilderness areas left…, open space…., sense of freedom…”,


“...the Peak District has got an intimacy about it ...a place you can find yourself...”


Jarvis Cocker:

“... describing Kinder, leaves me lost for words…”,

“... the more you walk in a place the more it will open itself to you and reveal its beauty…”

Coach Ramble 29th September CANCELLED

GeneralPosted by LizS Sat, September 07, 2019 07:27:53
Hi All,

Im really sorry but we have had to cancel the September coach ramble to Reeth. Having made enquiries at tourist information we were told that all was well after the floods and it was only when the walk leaders went up to reccie the walks that they discovered that a major cycle event (UCI world championships) was in the Dales that Sunday and was going through Reeth causing road closures at the time of our arrival. Unfortunately given the short time remaining and other commitments it was not possible to reccie walks in an other area.

Please pass on this information to anyone who may not access the blog or email. I will try to contact everyone who has booked directly and will be refunding those who have paid.

We will be planning our coach trips for next year and building in an early check for road closures! We hope to go to Reeth and do the walks which were planned.


Liz

Coach Ramble 29th September Reeth

GeneralPosted by LizS Wed, August 28, 2019 19:16:15
The last coach ramble of. 2019 will be going to Reeth in the Yorkshire Dales. We are going to Reeth rather than to Kirby Stephen as. originally advertised as the journey time to Kirby Stephen was too long.

The coach will be leaving at 8.00 am from Arundel Gate/Howard St. There will as usual be two led walks. The A walk will be approximately 12 miles and led by David Hogg and Andy Irwin. The B walk of approximately 8 miles will be led by Judy Gathercole and Susan Rushworth. Both walks will finish in Reeth and the coach will depart at 6.00pm. Details of the walks will be on the website once the reccies have been completed.

Reeth is a village in a magnificent setting on a plateau above the river Swale. It has cafes and two pubs and the Swaledale museum which may be of interest to non walkers.

All are welcome on our coach rambles so please encourage family and friends to come along. It is fine to come along and walk independently or just explore the local area.

Places are £13. To book or for further information email: lizmsavage@aol.com or phone/text 07711353310
