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

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

On Tuesday 30th January, from 7.30 - 10.00 pm, ITV are screening a documentary called Britain's 100 Top Walks, and I know that Stanage will be the focus of one of the walks, and that Bill Gordon (who gave us such a brilliant talk at our AGM) will feature in it as well. Deena

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.

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.
