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

Parkwood Springs closed Landfill site

GeneralPosted by Neill Fri, June 15, 2018 10:45:58
Hi. The Friends of Parkwood Springs are having a guided site visit of the closed Landfill site, next Wednesday (June 20th) at 2pm. It will be a good opportunity to find out how Viridor are restoring the site with new paths and planting, and to see the spectacular views from the top.
If you are interested, please let me know on 0777 156 4883. (We need to know in advance - bookings only.)
We meet in time to set off at 2pm from the Viridor offices on Parkwood Road, S3 8AG. You will need stout footwear, and there are some fairly steep gradients.
