Stop press! Change of venue

We will be meeting indoors from 10th September 2021 but not in the pavilion. For a variety of reasons, the pavilion isn't ideal so we're moving to Broadstone Mill, Reddish, SK5 7DL.

Where did the last few months go?

I decided, today, and yes I know it's a bit late in the day seeing as we're already in February, that one of my resolutions for 2020 would be to post something on here at least once a month. With that intention I sat myself down to write something 'interesting' and paled at the realisation … Continue reading Where did the last few months go?
