The first of our fundraising events, a coffee morning on Friday 14th September at Di’s house. We raised £130 for our charities of Helen’s Trust and the Air Ambulance.
In addition to our regular meetings we are hosting a number of additional fundraising events during 2018/2019. These will be in support of Helen’s Trust and the Air Ambulance. The first of these will be a coffee morning at Diana Dakin’s house, 49 Riber View Close, Tansley on Friday 14th September from 10.30 to 12.30. Coffee will be £2.00 and there will be a small raffle.
25 members were picked up by coach from various parts of Tansley and set off on a mystery tour which ended at The Cock Inn, Mugginton. It was one of the glorious evenings in July and we all sat in the beautiful garden and enjoyed a relaxed Pimms before going inside to have our meal.
After a very convivial (and sometimes quite loud) evening we were all returned to Tansley feeling very much better for our evening out.
Our next meeting is the Summer Outing on July 2nd. A coach journey to a surprise destination and meal.
A stalwart group of walkers met at 6.30 pm on the 18th June at Tansley Village Hall. Additional walkers were collected at Thatchers Lane and around a dozen ladies, 3 spouses and 2 dogs set off for a lovely evening stroll above Tansley. The weather was warm and although there were a few spots of rain everyone set out at a pace to cross stiles, fields, disused quarries now lush with trees and roads. The gibbet stone at Dethick was reached and its grisly purpose discussed.
The dogs added a great deal of fun and laughter to the walk as they bounded across or, on one occasion, head butted the stiles.
The walkers met up with other Ladies Group members at the Gate Inn at around 8pm where welcome refreshments were served and everyone settled in for a very convivial evening.
We are doing a local walk on Monday 18th June starting at the Village Hall at 6.30 and ending at The Gate at 7.30 to 8. Anyone is welcome to join us for the walk or the refreshments. If you would like to come please contact Di on 01629 55530.
