We REALLY DO need to talk about Thursdays

We REALLY DO need to talk about Thursdays

The idea of trying short (3-5 mile) evening walks on Thursdays during the summer received a warm welcome at the AGM, so I have put one in the schedule for the first Thursday of May, June, July, and August, probably starting at 7 pm.  Bury Ramblers do evening walks in these months, though other clubs – such as Burnley Mountaineers – do evening walks from Easter to September.  For the first year, I suggest that we stick to these four months, so that we can see how it goes, what pace we manage, and what time we finish; the last...

Barley & Christmas Lunch 20-12-17 – Leader Judy

Barley & Christmas Lunch 20-12-17 – Leader Judy

It seems to me that three lines from well-known songs perfectly sum up our day today: ‘Mud, mud, glorious mud’; ‘Food, glorious food’; and ‘We are family’, with the last one resonating particularly strongly with me.  Just look at the stats – 39 people walked, and 42 people sat down to eat Christmas lunch together.  Both of these figures are, as far as I am aware, records for Rossie Ramblers, and they reflect enormous credit upon leader Judy, organiser Linda, back marker in high-vis vest Derek, Chair...
