So, plans are coming together for our first gathering next week – 8th April.
We’ll meet at the Dove Stones Reservoir car park at 10am. It’s a pay and display, car park, I’m afraid, so don’t forget some change.
We’re planning an easy walk around the reservoirs, ending with a picnic lunch together. Please bring something to eat.
Part of our hopes for the day are that we will spend time getting to know one another, so it would be great if you were to bring some food that you were willing/ able to share with others.
Steve Fareham’s wonderful photo shows a gloriously sunny day. Sadly, those are distinctly rare above Saddleworth. The weather forecast today a week ahead of time is for a 20% chance of rain with a high temperature of 13ºC. So you will want to bring waterproofs and layers. There is a reasonable path around the reservoir, but you would still be wise to wear proper walking boots/ shoes.
