STOP PRESS! – Latest news – Thurs 22nd Feb 2024

Our latest talk was a subject close to our hearts – and literally close to all of us – when we were delighted to have as our guest speaker Ann le Sage, Chair of the Friends of the Porter Valley.

Ann brought us up to date on the Friends’ current efforts in their stated mission to “conserve, preserve and restore” the beautiful corridor to the west of Sheffield which links the Peak District to the heart of the city.

Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the motor car might not seem particularly compatible these days, but underlining the diversity of our talks we welcome the return of Paul Adey to our next meeting on Monday, 4th March, when his presentation is entitled “The History of the British Car Industry – Part Two.”

Our regular speaker meetings are held at Fulwood Sports Club on the first and third Mondays of each month, with members enjoying a chat with tea or coffee and biscuits from 10am before the day’s main business at 10.30am.

Members can now register their interest in joining us on our first outside visit of 2024 when head gardener David Kesteven will be giving us a guided tour of the gardens of Renishaw Hall, followed by lunch, on Wednesday, 29th May. Wives or partners are also welcome, and names can be added the list of attendees at our meeting on 4th March.
