The Walkie Talkies
Date Distance Leader(s) Walk Details & Meeting Point
5th December 6 miles Thelma Meet at Sheffield Cathedral at 10.30am
Taking in Park Hill, Skye Edge, City Road Cemetery, Norfolk Park and the Cholera Monument. Although a slightly longer distance for a short walk it is graded as easy with nothing very steep, on good paths so good walking shoes should suffice if people don't wish to wear boots.

19th December Short Dave Meet at the junction of Stephen Hill / Back Lane / Stephen Drive. On road parking well away from the junction.
This will be a whimsical pre-Christmas wander in the Rivelin Valley. I have no specific route in mind and intend to make decisions as I go along depending on conditions and how the fancy takes me. However I will keep it short and try to avoid any steep climbs coming out of the valley. Please note there will not be a coffee stop on this walk. However at the end of it all walkers are cordially invited to 21 Stephen Drive where 'serve yourself soup and sandwiches' will be available together with all the types of beverages that you would normally expect at the end of a Thursday walk. PLEASE note that any walker attempting to bring any type of food or drink will not be admitted!
