***Weekend opening Newsflash***

Spring Bank Holiday Weekend opens 09/04/15 at the Greyhound in Derby at 8.30pm SHARP.

Fed up with this dreary weather and long for the warm late Spring evenings, sea air, golden sands, waves crashing on the rocks, sun, sea, sand, several miles of walking and a blooming Spring romance - when book on this weekend ON 09/04/2015 at the Derby Pub meet!! Ok, I can't promise you a blooming romance, but can promise you a jolly good time!

There has been dozens of enquires about this trip already, so make sure you are at the Greyhound at 8.30pm SHARP to book your space.

Cardigan Bay Weekend - Spring Bank Holiday 22/05/15 to 26/05/15

Fed up with the hustle & bustle of everyday life, the noise and the traffic of Derby or Nottingham, want to escape from the rat race? Well fear not! Join our very own Cornish Wayfarer Gary Olds for the amazing coastal trip to the picturesque Cardigan Bay in West Wales.

Cardigan bay is arguably the most scenic part of England or Wales not to be in a national park, boasting miles of stunning coastal paths, sandy beaches and hidden coves to explore. The pretty Welsh seaside villages of Aberporth, Poppit Sands, New Quay (not the Cornish one!) and Llangranog are just a coastal walk away from our fine 4* accommodation at the Piggery Poke Hostel near Aberporth

This location is a first ever visit for NDWG and hopefully we will explore the sun, sea, sand and ssss.....several miles of coastal walking this fine region has to offer before it comes a major tourist trap.

The walks encountered on this trip will be undulating coastal walking of around 8-12 miles at Ramblers Grade C to D, but also anticipate soaking up the rays on a stunning beach or possibly swimming if you remember your costume.

The cost for this three night trip is a snip at just £65. Bookings will open at 8.30pm promptly at the Greyhound Derby regular pub meet on Thursday 09/04/2015.

So don't waste money on a 'pig in a poke' dodgy hotel accommodation this May Bank Holiday - book on the 'Piggery Poke'

Please contact Robert Stevens if you have any enquiries.

There are still spaces on the Grindleford Conservation Weekend so if you fancy a bargain stay in the Peak District this could be for you. Two nights for a fiver and a bit of work to help the upkeep of the Peaks. Meal out on Saturday and you're free to join the Sunday walks as usual!!!

Hi, thinking of walking the lady bower res next weekend, very gently over two days, any recommendations on a good youth hostel or the best way to do it? Can also do a B and B if there's one en route? Need some expert advice 😃 thanks

The General Election is approaching fast. The Ramblers are calling for political candidates to support the creation of a Walking Britain which promotes active, healthy lifestyles through walking; protects the places where people walk, and improves access to the outdoors. Join them, and take action by writing to your parliamentary candidates to ask for their support. Details on the link below:
