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.

See you in the pub soon!

Upcoming Events

Day trip to Lincoln – 20th June

Fancy a day trip to Lincoln?

The plan is to meet at the cathedral main entrance at 2pm ready for the Lincoln cathedral tower tour at 2.30pm (for spectacular panoramic views of Lincoln and beyond). The tour lasts around 1 hour. Then we can either stick together and visit a tea shop or pub and have steady meander down the historic steep hill checking out the odd shop or two on route. Or if people want to do their own thing there are options to explore the main part of the cathedral, check out the castle or visit a pub or two.

A table will be booked at one of the Italian restaurants (Ask Italian, Prezzo or Zizi) down by the water’s side overlooking the quay for 5pm; for those who wish to grab a bite to eat.

If you would like to come along – please let me know via email or text and you will also need to book your own ticket for the 2.30pm tower tour (cost is £8 entrance fee to the cathedral plus £4 for the tower tour)

I am planning to catch the 12.27pm train from Nottingham

Hope to see you there
