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

GeneralPosted by angela Mon, August 27, 2018 21:12:17
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.

No August Fixit

FixitPosted by Jan Wed, August 01, 2018 19:21:24
We are going to have a rest/holiday in August as no job has emerged. Please talk to walkers and see if we can come up with some worthwhile job for September.

AUGUST FIXIT?

Does anyone have any suggestions for the August FIXIT? If so please get in touch.

Mondays fixit

Jackie needs our car on Monday, so if anyone could give me a lift to fixit on Monday from Stannington it would be much appreciated.

Thanks Chris.



COFFEE WITH FRIENDS

GeneralPosted by angela Wed, June 27, 2018 10:00:14
A later than usual reminder:

All invited to meet up for coffee or breakfast or brunch at Temptations cafe, opposite the entrance to walled garden and library at Hillsborough Park, this Friday 29th at 10.30am.

This coffee morning has been well attended both by those living across the city and those who perhaps do not get out walking as much as they used to but like to keep in touch with friends.

Temptations is under new ownership so is under test by us this Friday. The matter of whether another location is preferred can be discussed - on here and on Friday.

warm wishes,
Angela
