Twenty Five walkers came along for our March walk. We set off in brilliant sunshine from The Dog and Duck pub in King’s Clipstone and had a very pleasant 6.5 mile walk. The walk took us through to Vicar Water Park via the Clipstone Colliery headstocks, before leaving the park and making our way to Sherwood Pines.

After our lunch stop there, we headed back to The Dog and Duck pub for a well-earned drink.

It makes me very sad to know that it was our last walk together for a few months but at least we can remember this one. Thank you to Steve and Anne Lawrence for leading it.

In February we swapped muddy fields and stiles for the paved streets of Nottingham City Centre and took part in our second ‘Observational photo quiz walk’.

The event was very popular, with 34 taking part. We were split into six teams, each of which were provided with a sheet of photos of specific architectural features of 28 buildings, a list of street names and a city centre map. The aim was to match the photos to the location and to return to Soulville Steakhouse once completed.

David Jackson and Greg Umney planned the whole event, so they had the task of marking our sheets. Of the 6 teams, 5 had correctly placed all of the photos and, after a tie break question, ‘Team Marian’ were declared the winners. A great day out, rounded off by a tasty lunch!!

Our next walk is from King’s Clipstone – on Monday, 16th March, 2020.

Twenty people came along on Sunday 12th January for our 6 mile walk along the canal. We had a lovely day, which included a coffee/tea in the Heritage Centre cafe at Beeston Lock and then a meal in Wetherspoons at the end!

Our next walk will be on Monday 17th February, 2020. We’ll be getting the first tram after 9:30 am so that we are ready for a 10:15 am start. This is a Nottingham City/Quiz walk and we’ll be working in teams for this.

For our last walk of the year, 32 happy ramblers made the most of the beautiful sunshine walking from Beeston Weir, along the Trent to Clifton Bridge and back along the canal. After stopping for lunch by Beeston Lock, we looped around Attenborough Nature Reserve, where we encountered the only muddy paths of the day! We ended the day with a welcome drink in the Boat and Horses pub. Thanks go to Philip and Liz Attenborough for leading this lovely walk. We now look forward to exploring more of the countryside next year.

Our walk leaders met in November to plan our walks for 2020 and I am pleased to say that we have another full programme of walks. We will be starting on January 20th with a city centre walk/quiz, followed by food and drinks in a pub.

Thank you to all our 2019 walk leaders who have provided us with an excellent year of walking.

Our October walk, led by Dave and Carol Insley, started from The Newdigate Pub in West Hallam. This was a 7 mile walk, which provided us with a good variety of scenery and paths, including wooded areas, Mapperley village, parts of The Nutbrook Trail and Shipley Country Park.

Twenty Five walkers enjoyed being out in the fresh air with this lovely group of people. And of course we ended the walk with a drink in the Newdigate Arms!! Thanks go to Dave and Carol.

Our next walk – Monday, November 18th, 2019 – Around Attenborough Nature Reserve
