This Week!

Here's some more detailed information about what we're getting up to this week!

Thursday's Social - The AGM - The Red Deer

Thursday 27th April 2017

Want to help us run the club the upcoming academic year? Want to just meet up with new/existing friends and see what happens? Our social this week is for you!

The club's AGM will be taking place this Thursday at The Red Deer. Please arrive promptly for an 8.30 pm start. The club has booked the upstairs room.

During the AGM, members will have the opportunity to vote to accept the club's updated constitution, and to elect the committee for the following academic year. We’re short on committee members right now!

You can view the candidates which have already applied to run for the various roles via this google document. We do still have a number of vacant positions, so we will be allowing people to also stand for a role on the night. You don’t need to be a walks leader to be on the committee – you just need a bit of enthusiasm! (And maybe some experience for certain roles, but don’t let that stop you asking!) You just also need to say why you want to do it for about a minute, it doesn’t have to be that professional, just give it a go.

Please can you also remember to bring a pen with you to vote. Someone needs to or we’ll be a bit stuck…

Saturday's Walk - The Charity Relay Ramble

Saturday 29th April 2017 

This Saturday, we’re offering not one, not two, but FIVE walks! That’s because we’re raising money for Edale Mountain Rescue by attempting to walk from Manchester to Sheffield in one day! But don’t worry – you don’t have to do all of it. Just come along on one of our walks and help us complete our goal! If you would like to donate to the charity (we'd be grateful to raise any amount, no matter how small!), or someone else would, here’s a link to our fundraising page:

 Otherwise, here’s the list of walks, and useful information:

Walk 1: Manchester Piccadilly – Brinnington
 Meet at 04:55                Length: 7.1miles/11.45km                     Cost: £12.40 Railcard/£18.80 Non-Railcard
The first leg is from Manchester to Brinnington. Please meet the leaders at Sheffield train station promptly at 04:55 (we don’t envisage many people coming on this one...) to take the 05:11 train to Manchester. A short-ish walk along some of Manchester’s finest canals and football stadia will end in the world-famous (not really) suburb of Brinnington, ready to hand over the baton at 8:30.

 
Meet the leaders under the departure boards at Sheffield train station.

Walk 2: Brinnington – New Mills
  
Meet at 06:55                Length: 10.1miles/16.3km                     Cost: £9.40 Railcard/£14.20 Non-Railcard
 If you’re interested in the second leg from Brinnington to New Mills, meet the leaders at Sheffield train station promptly at 06:55 for the 07:12 train. This walk is a little longer (about 10 miles) but is on easy, flat terrain for the most part. Fun Fact: well-known sweet manufacturer Swizzels Matlow is based in New Mills. Maybe after you hand over the baton at 12:02 you can go hunting for confectionery (or, alternatively, get a nutritious, balanced lunch).
Meet the leaders under the departure boards at Sheffield train station.

 

Walk 3: New Mills – Edale
 
Meet at 10:45                Length: 9.7miles/15.6km                      Cost: £7.80 Railcard/£11.80 Non-Railcard
The third leg (from New Mills to Edale) is the only walk that contains significant climbs, including the notorious Jacob’s Ladder (not a real ladder). Please meet the leaders at Sheffield train station at 10:45 for the 11:14 train. The walk will end by transferring the baton at 15:30 at Edale.
 Meet the leaders under the departure boards at Sheffield train station.
 
Walk 4: Edale – Hathersage
 Meet at 13:45                Length: 10.3miles/16.5km                     Cost: £5.70 Railcard/£8.60 Non-Railcard
The fourth leg is probably our most archetypical walk, travelling between two of our favourite Peak District villages (Edale to Hathersage). Beautiful rolling hills, idyllic farm buildings, invisible Roman forts, suspicious sheep, some trees – these are all things you can expect to encounter on this walk! Please arrive at Sheffield train station at 13:45 for the 14:14 train – purchase your train ticket and proceed to board the train which should depart from platform 2C. Alight the train at Edale, and wait on the platform for the leaders to meet you. The walk will end by transferring the baton at 19:00 at Hathersage.

 
Get on the 14:14 train to Edale and meet the leaders at Edale station platform. If you arrive before the leaders (the baton might be a bit late), wait there until they arrive. (Of course if you’re standing there for a long time, something’s probably gone wrong, if so please get a train back to Sheffield again! But we’re hoping we’ll manage!)
 
 Walk 5: Hathersage – The Octagon
Meet at 17:45                Length: 10.1miles/16.2km                     Cost: £2.60 Railcard/£3.90 Non-Railcard

 
The fifth leg – the victory leg! – takes us from Hathersage to the Octagon. If you’re interested in (hopefully) celebrating a successful relay ramble, then please arrive at Sheffield train station at 17:45 for the 18:14 train - purchase your train ticket and proceed to board the train which should depart from platform 2C. Alight the train at Hathersage, and wait on the platform for the leaders to meet you. We aim to trudge into Sheffield a little after 10pm, so there should be enough time for a post-relay pint (or shot)!
Get on the 18:14 train to Hathersage and meet the leaders at Hathersage station platform. If you arrive before the leaders (the baton might be a bit late), wait there until they arrive. (Of course if you’re standing there for a long time, something’s probably gone wrong, if so please get a train back to Sheffield again! But we’re hoping we’ll manage!)

Sunday's Walk - No Walk Today

Sunday 30th April 2017

There's no walk today because we're recovering from our long charity walk on the Saturday, which should be a great day out if you can make part of it.
