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.

Some of us are meeting for a coffee this Friday at 10.30am at Temptations Cafe opposite the walled garden entrance of Hillsborough Park. The nearest tramstop is Hillsborough Park. All welcome. They sell nice cake as well.


Coffee with friends

The Temptations cafe is apparently closed all week so the intended meetup is off tomorrow. The next one will be at the same place on Friday 26th January. Let's make it 10.30 so as to allow use of bus passes for anyone coming from the other side of town.

Lost and Found

One of the walkers on Tuesday's Christmas meal left a pair of sunglasses at the pub. I will take them with me on Tuesday walks so they can be returned to their rightful owner.

Many thanks to the organisers of Tuesday's Christmas meal for what was a memorable day.

Sheila Orme

P.S. I hope you all have a Happy Christmas.

Jackie Takes Charge

Jackie Knight assisting the Ramblers Chief Exec, Vanessa, to cross Burbage Brook on the rope swing, when she visited the our area recently. To quote Vanessa "I spent a marvellous day ... the views were magnificent and the company equally so."

Coffee with friends

Half a dozen of us met for coffee this morning. smileyWe thought it would be nice to make it a regular meet up, on the last Friday of the month at 10.00am and to open it up to the rest of our fellow walkers. It affords an opportunity to catch up with those of us who may not be out walking regularly for whatever reason.

We will meet at the Temptations Cafe, 181 Middlewood Road, Hillsborough, directly opposite the Secret Garden entrance to Hillsborough Park. The closest tramstop is Hillsborough Park.

Just turn up.
