Our February walk took us from Sandiacre to Bramcote Hills Park by way of the Erewash Canal, Stoney Clouds Nature Reserve and Stapleford Hill. The day started with drizzle, but by the time we set off the weather was clearing and we finished in sunshine! After the walk most of us stayed on for lunch at the Sherwin Arms – including some puddings!
Party Night is always fun and Nottingham Lace is a great way to finish!
This year’s Christmas Walk took place at Colwick Park followed by lunch at the Toby Carvery. As so often this year, we avoided the showers and enjoyed a circular route in the Country Park. The walkers were then joined by a number of others for our substantial lunch complete with crackers, jokes and silly hats.
Thanks to Mick for the walk and the organisation.
This year’s celebration of our patron saint was attended by 44 members and guests. They enjoyed good company and a wonderful meal. This was followed by Sylvia Hale proposing the toast to Scotland and was topped off by the ceilidh led by Schuggie MacInnes. Read all about it in the Chanter!

Our November walk from Strelley was blessed with a clear crisp autumn day. We started from the Mulberry Tree Café and crossed the M1 for a circular loop in the countryside between Cossall, Kimberley and Strelley. This area is a tranquil oasis on the west of Nottingham with views across to Ilkeston and beyond – beautiful on a clear day. We then re-assembled for a convivial lunch in the Mulberry Tree. Thanks to Dave for organising and leading the walk.
