and Aviemore! A great way to start the New Year would be coming to this
Sunday’s walks in Dovedale lead by myself & Louis.
Starting point for both walks is the Dovedale Car Park (Postcode DE6 2AY)
starting at 10:30am. Please bare in mind the cost of the car park for all
day parking is £2.50 per car. Any problems please free to get in touch with
either of us!
See you Sunday!
The hottest event of the festive season is rapidly approaching, but there are still a few tickets left.
Fancy a fun filled winter walk in a mystery location in the Peaks?
Chilling out after the walk with a well earned ale? Being transported to The George Hotel, Tideswell for an evening of festivities and merriment?
The Christmas Coach trip is on Saturday 8th December. You can book on most walks or by contacting Rachael Drewery on 07827 785015 or at email@example.com
Tickets are £29.50 and selling fast.
P.S. Why not book a ticket for a friend? It’s traditional to have a few friends of members joining in the fun. As long as they have appropriate clothing and footwear for the walk they are more than welcome!
Saturday Matlock Bath 11AM
This walk starts from Matlock BATH station, as per the programme, not Matlock, as the digest post may have inadvertently implied.
Parking available, but may be very busy.
Train from Nottingham: 9.18, Derby 9.50
Bus (Transpeak): Nottingham: 910, Derby 9.50
(If taking the train from Nottingham, please allow extra time to walk to the temporary ticket office.)
Sunday Warslow 10.30AM
Both walks now have replacement leaders. Thanks to Dave and Jane (long walk) and Louis (short walk) for stepping in.
NDWG has always relied on volunteers to lead walks. Put simply, no volunteer leaders, no walks. So please look through the new walks programme linked from the front page of the website and volunteer to lead one of the walks needing a leader. You can contact the walks co-ordinator to volunteer.
Just to confirm, the start point for this walk is the Heatherdene car park off the A6013, north of Bamford, south of the Ladybower Viaduct, SK202859.
Due to the Robin Hood Half Marathon, we will be unable to use the usual Nottingham meet point this Sunday. Instead, please meet up outside Nottingham Playhouse, by the Sky Mirror, for the usual 9AM departure. We will shuttle surplus cars to free parking as usual. N.B. in view of the likely increased warden presence this Sunday, if leaving your car “out of immediate sight” you may wish to put 50p on a meter for peace of mind. This is a one-off change; arrangements revert to usual from Sunday 7th October onwards.
Further information on this Sunday’s walks will be published on the Digest and the NDWG Facebook page.
We have a “New Starter” social next Tuesday (18th) at The Castle pub in Nottingham (www.tinyurl. com/thecastlepub). If you haven’t yet managed to get out on a walk or social then this is an ideal opportunity to come and meet members of the group, including members of our Committee, and to find out what we are all about! If you are already a regular, please come along to this rather fine hostelry to meet, welcome and encourage new members. If you have friends who might be interested in getting walking or joining the group, please bring them along, the more the merrier! As always, existing members are more than welcome.
See you there from 8pm!
