Welcome to our Socials page where you’ll find out about our upcoming day trips, nights out and adventure activities around Nottingham and Derby. We aim to fill the calendar with varied and fun events so if you want an event adding or have any ideas, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Regular pub meets are held once a month in both Derby and Nottingham. These are great fun whether you’re new or have been with the group for years. Share stories of walks, have a drink and catch up with friends.
Group meals are held regularly in Derby and Nottingham. We try to vary the choice (and cost) of cuisine on offer so keep checking back and see if there are any meals you fancy. If you’d like to see your favourite restaurant on there, tell us about it!
One off events are always welcomed. Fancy horse-riding, ice skating, Go Ape? If you want it, just tell us and we’ll make it happen.
If you have not ridden a bike for some time or if indeed you are an avid cyclist, come and join us for a fairly easy pedal along the High Peak Trail with the option of a picnic or pub lunch.
Starting at the Cycle Hire Centre at Middleton Top near Wirksworth and along the High Peak Trail and back again, total time would be around 3 hours.
The plan would then be to drive the short distance to the Rising Sun Pub at Wirksworth for lunch at around 2pm.
The cost for a 3 hour bike hire is £13 each or £16 for the day which includes a cycle helmet. Suggest we meet at 10am at the cycle hire. They require photo ID to hire a bike so remember your driving license or another type of ID with your picture.
There is an alternative of cycling further along the trail to Parsley Hay and having a picnic lunch there - returning to Middleton Top at around 3pm. We will just decide on the day.
Let me know if you are joining us. Hope to see you there.
