On July 1st we all met at the Village Hall to set off on our mystery trip for our summer outing. Before we set off we had drinks kindly provided by Di to celebrate the end of her time as chairman.
We arrived at the New Bath Hotel, Matlock Bath and had an night of lovely food, drink and talk. It was a very loud and enjoyable evening.
Our summer walk was from the Village Green, up the steep climb to the top of Foxholes Lane and then on to Joe Neville’s shooting ground. Seven members walked and luckily, after 11 days of non stop rain, had a dry hike up. More members drove up and had refreshments ready. Anyone who wanted to shoot clays had a go with others watching or giving advice!
Our next meeting is on Monday 3rd June. Our speaker, Elizabeth Holloway, will give a humorous account of her life and travels on a narrowboat.
One of our members, Tracy Sims, is running the Chatsworth 10k on 30th June 2019 in aid of our chosen charities, Helen’s Trust and the Air Ambulance. All sponsorship will be gratefully received.
