It is with regret that I am letting you know that Fred Hammond has died aged 87. Fred was a long term Wednesday walker until approximately 2013 when he was 82. He died at home, apparently in his sleep, towards the end of last week.

Funeral arrangements have yet to be made. When the details are known I will put them on the Blog.

Wed Xmas lunch

John has just contacted me to say that the Malin Bidge Inn will provide an identical menu to his first choice except that there will be cheescake instead of sticky toffee pudding.

I wil assume that anyone who previously ordered sticky toffee is happy with the replacement unless they say otherwise. This will have to be very quickly say by teatime Monday 26th since the pub is asking for menu orders.

Whoops!

It's been pointed out to me that, in my last blog, I put the last date for ordering Sunday's Christmas dinner was 7th September - in which case we're all too late!

I don't know what calendar I was looking at because I got it completely wrong anyway - we do, in fact, need to order by Wednesday 5th December.

Sorry about that.

Christmas Dinner

GeneralPosted by Judy Wed, October 24, 2018 21:14:42
Sunday Christmas dinner, 16th December.

I've had an email back from Little John - the deposit will be £5 and the last day to order will be Wednesday 12th September.

Susan will be collecting names on 7th and 14th November then I'll take it back again. Or you can email me - judygath@gmail.com.

Sorry, I can't get the menu to open in any other form on the blog. If you're not out to see it please email me and I'll email you a copy.

Sunday Christmas Dinner

Yet another date to save! As you will have seen in the newsletter the Sunday Christmas dinner will be on 16th December at Little John in Hathersage. The walk will be led by Dave Jefferies and will finish about 4. We expect to eat between 4.30 and 5 o'clock.

The menu is below. I will start taking orders tomorrow but will then be away so Susan will take over from me for a while. I am waiting to hear from them about the deposit.

Sorry the image is not very clear - I'll bring some printed ones out.

SAVE THE DATE 2

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.
