As we close out the old season we’re ready to usher in the new one. The 18th March starts Ladffa’s 2018 season and another Beast from the East is set to appear over the weekend, albeit not as serious as previously. If members are going out over the next couple of days please take care as the rivers will be full and flowing faster than normal and if snow or ice are around the roads and river banks will be slippy.
The B5056 Fenny Bentley to Bakewell road is, at the moment, closed for road works so access to the Bentley Brook is, for the most part, only via the Tissington Estate, from the A515 Ashbourne to Buxton road. Take extra care if you decide to cross over the ford as high water can create problems crossing.
Again a reminder that there is a working party on the 24th March on the Upper Dove meeting at Ludwell farm around 09.30. Small tools required. The ground around Ludwell is very wet so good footwear is needed.
Access details for the Staffordshire bank and hotel parking arrangements will be finalised soon. Please contact me for the details.
Finally for those members who have yet to renew, contact me so that I can send out your new season’s card.
