I hope members enjoyed their Summer break. We met at 1.30pm on 4th September, when £5 subs. were required from all members.
From September we shall be adopting the funding system that has proved successful with other groups, where there is a requirement that all members pay into a ‘kitty’ from which expenses are taken, until the funds are depleted and members make a further contribution. With our current membership, subs. of £5 should cover approximately four meetings, which will be the next four consecutive choir meetings.
Unfortunately there cannot be any credit for absences, but the system does reduce the cost of meetings yet again. New members only may opt to pay either the £5, or the current £2 per meeting, until the next subs. are due from all members.

With the sun breaking through and shining on the group, a very pleasant walk was had across the river from Belper. Starting in the village of Milford, twenty two members climbed out of the village onto the ridge of North Lane, an old Roman road, which offered admiring views. This being Strutt country, the route had several historical facts on the way. We crossed fields and a ford to the road into Belper and then the West Mill and Riverside Gardens.
We had lunch by the river and then tracked the river back to Milford.
Just before entering the village was the 1840 tunnel entrance built by Stephenson and son and still in use. Then it was back to the cars and off to the Hurt Arms pub for refreshments.
Thank you to Greg Umney and David Jackson for providing us with this lovely walk.
Next walk – Monday October 21st – The Nutbrook Trail (West Hallam).
