Halifax 27-10-2017 – Leader Derek

After a bit of struggle, twelve walkers finally assembled at Dean Clough Mills, including Kim, who had decided to try us out ~ hope you enjoyed the day. We were also graced, somewhat unusually, by the presence of our Chair, and Walks Coordinator, both of whom made their attendance felt! I was a little late as a consequence of a burst water main on Burnley Road. Anyone would think I had committed a mortal sin, and received a reprimand before I had even parked, not to mention a couple of phone calls as I was struggling to navigate myself through...

Gargrave 22-10-2017  Leader Tom

On Saturday night, the weather forecast for Gargrave was dire. By Sunday morning, it had improved marginally, but there were still 6 people who couldn’t find anything better to do than turn up for a 9 mile walk. All 6 were ready to go half an hour before the advertised start time of 10.15, and although one of our number wanted to set off early, the Chairman stamped her foot and said “No!”.  In the event, it was twenty past 10 before we set off….! It was raining and the wind was howling as we left the car park and it...
