Hope walking club

May 1, 2009 at 5:26 pm Leave a comment

Part of the original vision of “Hope for Belper” when it was first launched last year was to organise things which people can invite their friends and neighbours along to and so build bridges within the community.

With this in mind we are launching a walking club this month under the Hope umbrella which we hope will be one small way in which we can do this.

We will aim to do five or six walks a year which will be a mixture of difficult, moderate and easy walking – a couple of hard slogs in the Peak District, some family-friendly rambles around Belper, and one or two like in between.

We know this won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but for those who like this sort of thing we reckon it will be a great way to build friendships.

The first walk will be on Saturday 9 May and will start from the junction of the A6 and A610 at Ambergate at 10,30am. It will follow a route up Crich Chase to the war memorial, back to Whatstandwell, across to Alderwasley and finally back to Ambergate via Shining Cliff Woods.

The route is eight miles long in all so including a break for lunch we would expect the walk to take 4-5 hours.

If that sounds like too much effort, the half-way point is the Derwent Hotel, Whatstandwell, so you are welcome to join us (or leave us!) at that point.

If you would like to come along, please email Paul at nottinghamroad@hotmail.co.uk. And remember to invite a friend!
