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.

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.

Some members will already know that Margaret took a fall on last Wednesday's walk. She has fractured her fibula in one leg and is in pot for 6 weeks!
I visited her today. She is coping, has lifts to the hospital and a good friend who does her shopping.
She is happy to receive her friends as visitors. I won't put her address on here but her mobile number is 07977 849259

If anyone doesn't feel up to the long walk tomorrow, I will do my recce for Wednesday. It is the no 273 bus to Cutthroat Bridge. I will catch it en route. 11 miles. Finish High Bradfield. It will be nice to have some company. See you on the bus.

TENERIFE WALKING FESTIVAL 2016

General 2015Posted by angela Thu, March 31, 2016 18:58:40
Three things I have learned today;
1. Never go walking without full waterproofs even if its in Tenerife.
2. Just because they are given as delightful samples of different delicacies made with local ingredients, if you eat too many you will still feel sick.
3. Umbrellas bought at Poundshop are not actually worth a pound.

Seriously though Canarians have put enormous effort into this 2nd annual walking festival. They want to promote the Canaries as a hiking destination and attract a different kind of tourist.

I registered and chose my walks before leaving home. We were given a civic reception and lots of freebies. The walks are well organised and you can choose between coastal, forest and mountain. We were accompanied by local guides, linguists, national park people, tourist office reps and the European President of the Ramblers. I have met people from Hungary, Canada ,Netherlands, Holland and, Denmark.

Next year's festival is in May. Check it out. I paid less than a Contours Walking holiday in the UK for travel, transfers, half board hotel and walking fees. A great experience.
