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 email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
Choose from a mouth-watering array of burgers at this great, relaxed venue
in central Nottingham.
Plenty of options for vegetarians too. Annie's also has a separate bar area
for pre- or post-dinner drinks.
This event is filling up, but there are still a few spaces available. To
secure a place, please contact Gavin Kerr: email@example.com or on 07795 692 096.
We are trailing a new format to support conservation work in our local area
to see if we encourage more people to get involved! The conservation work
will be local to Nottingham and therefore it will not include an overnight
stay in a barn. There'll be a group meal in the evening in Nottingham
(location TBC) as a reward for all your hard work!
The Conservation Day will be on the 12th March from 10am – 3.30pm and is
being organised via Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust. We'll be carrying out
work at one of Nottingham's newest nature reserves Skylarks where the trust
are doing some major restoration and conservation work. Skylarks is the
biggest nature reserve in Rushcliffe and sits alongside Holme Pierrepoint
Watersports Centre acting as a fantastic corridor for wildlife. The work
will involve clearing pathways and fence lines.
There is no cost associated with this day (apart from the meal!) and all
equipment will be provided. It would be great if people who haven’t
previously come on a Conservation Weekend took this as an opportunity to
see what it is all about; and of course it would be great if all the
conservation regulars could attend too!
