No August Fixit

FixitPosted by Jan Wed, August 01, 2018 19:21:24
We are going to have a rest/holiday in August as no job has emerged. Please talk to walkers and see if we can come up with some worthwhile job for September.

Does anyone have any suggestions for the August FIXIT? If so please get in touch.

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.

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,

July Fixit Monday 2nd

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.

Closing lane to traffic

Hi everyone

Derbyshire council are consulting about prohibiting motor vehicles from a lane near Stoney Middleton know as Jacob's Ladder. The proposal could use your support.

You can see the details and answer a questionnaire on the consultation web page.


June Fixit

FixitPosted by Jan Fri, May 25, 2018 13:57:22
Hello Fixiteers;
Because so many people are away in June we will schedule the next Fixit for the third Monday which is the 18th.
Tony may find a job for us but if not we will return to The Porter Valley, park in the car park at WireMill Dam and work on improving the drainage channels leading up to Forge Dam.
Look out for a possible update which I will blog if Tony comes up with an alternative to the above.
Happy Holidaying with no incidents!
