GeneralPosted by LizS Sat, March 10, 2018 16:44:54
Hi Everybody,

Spring is here so we can now look forward to the first coach ramble of 2918 which will be taking us to the seaside.

The coach will depart as usual from Arundel Gate/Howard St at 8.00 am and will leave Saltburn to return to Sheffield no later than 6.00 pm.

The A walk (approx 11miles) will go from Great Ayton via Roseberry Topping and along part of the Cleveland way to finish in Saltburn. The B walk (approx 8 miles) will start and Guisborough and will also be going to Saltburn along part of the Cleveland way. There will be cafes, pubs and fish and chips in Saltburn as well as an opportunity for a swim in the sea or perhaps a paddle.

All are welcome either to join one of the walks or to walk independently or just have a day at the seaside.

Places are £12 and will be on sale on walks or contact me lizmsavage@aol.com or text phone 07711353310

Recent Incident

GeneralPosted by MalcolmD Sun, February 18, 2018 17:01:30
I won't be able to come out on Wednesday's walk due to another commitment that day so I thought people who were on the walk I led a couple of weeks ago may be pleased to hear about Terry Guy, a guest walker that day, who slipped when we were on our way down Lose Hill. It sounds like he is well on the way to recovery and we may see him again. Cheers. Malcolm Dixon

"Many thanks for your email the incident report is fine. I didn't for some reason receive Val's email about the bent pole but if Dave is Ok with it its fine by me....

I've looked at your forthcoming programme and it appeals to me, having walked from West of Sheffield some years ago now with a private group. I've been looking at nearer caravan sites so that I can join you from the start point sometime but of course most are shut until March or April..if I do make it I'll buy Dave a drink.

As far as my knee is concerned I went out with Colchester Group on Wednesday but conditions were muddy and slippery and I struggled a bit...now that the bruising and swelling has died down I'm feeling some underlying injury which will obviously take time and rest to heal.

My best mate commented to them that only laryngitis would stop me walking so his card is marked for future retribution!!

Regards, Terry Guy"

Dear All,

A Fall

GeneralPosted by Susan Sun, January 28, 2018 21:59:32
On today's walk Joan [Taylor] fell when starting to cross a muddy field above Bradwell. She hurt her shoulder. We all went with her down to the road. She and John caught the bus to Sheffield and went straight to Royal Hallamshire Hospital. Joan has broken a bone in her upper arm, just below the socket. Joan and John were home by mid afternoon. Joan's arm is in a sling. She has to go to the fracture clinic at Northern General next Wednesday.

Susan
