"The weather forecast was WRONG! We knew there was a slight chance of light showers but we weren't expecting the hailstorm which hit us just as we were finishing lunch. However, I think everyone enjoyed the 'invigorating' climb up to Stanage Edge for the wonderful views which we enjoyed in-between the showers. A member of another walking group had the misfortune to fall but luckily Carole was nearby and was able to administer first-aid. Well done Carole! Tea and home-made cake afterwards at the church hall in Hathersage was very welcome.
We were all sorry Gwenda wasn't able to be on the walk following her accident but we all send her our best wishes."
In return, Gwenda wrote a note of thanks to Margaret
"Hi everyone, I would just like to send a huge public thank you to Margaret S for leading the walk we had planned together as unfortunately I now have a pot on my arm! - whatever next? I think she had even followed Jayne's example and baked a surprise treat, and from what I can gather they experienced every form of weather today but were very lucky to find tea and cake 🍰 in the village hall near the beautiful church there. I’m gutted I couldn’t join you as it’s my favourite place or as some might say I will do anything to avoid leading a walk or driving ! but this was a bit extreme! Sounds like a good turn out too. Thanks again Margaret best wishes Gwenda xx
