Easby, Skeeby and Aske

 

Eight hardy members (Ann L, Brian, Caroline, Frank, Gwyneth and Richard) braved a cloudy, drizzly morning to meet in the Market Place for a later than usual 11.00 am start for a stroll around the environs of Richmond ahead of the SOC AGM scheduled for later that afternoon.

 

It ain’t half hot Mum!

Posted by Trevor Thurlow on 2020-02-02

So here I am again motoring through the Doldrums Corridor, this time on the Solomon Sea rather than the Atlantic Ocean, as in September 2019. Conditions here, on the other side of the planet, are even hotter as we make our way from the heat of the Australian Summer towards Sanya in China, via my second equator crossing. There is no escape from the heat as the sun beats down every day, with the odd shower or heavy downpour of rain increasing the humidity which remains with us through the hours of darkness.

Coalsgarth and Applegarth 23 January

“You win some, you lose some”

This Thursday’s walk started out with the loss of its leader – Geraint broke his foot before Christmas so Kate stepped in, having recced it with him before his Westfield “trip”.  We began by nearly gaining two to our number with a couple of “Walking for Health” members who mistook us for healthy people.  It was quite a coincidence that WfH were doing their “Hill and Dale” walk on the same day but from the other end of the racecourse.

Graham Rogers caught on camera drinking a coffee at the end of a walk. He is expected to make a full recovery!

Fifteen walkers turned up in Richmond Market Place to catch the 10.05 bus up the Dale to Downholme – we nearly filled the bus – and James joined us at Hudswell Steps.

A Circular Walk from Osmotherley – 12 December 2019

Eight of us were out on this walk starting in Osmotherley.  Thanks to Jill for standing in when Judith was unable to lead.  It was great to see Ian out on the walk, his first for some time.
