The events committee was formed by the President in order that the various events within the Club can be coordinated, and at least one event per month should be organised. The Committee have been very active and proposed a dining out evening, 10 pin bowling (several sessions held and more are planned), a Walking treasure hunt, a car treasure hunt, Visits to the Assay office, a guided walk in August round Chapel en Le Frith, with a meal out, a visit to the National Mining Museum, and The Sheffield Motor Show, an exhibition of new cars in the centre of the City, on 3rd and 4th June.
Two music events have also been organised, with two bands, as well as our own Bombers, all raising funds for local charities. Using the success of The Heart Trail, a signed walk to aid cardiac patients in their rehabilitation, a Heritage Trail is now being planned in the City Centre, with similar intentions, but to also educate users about the buildings, or sites of buildings, which they are walking past.
Longer term, The Club has been invited by The Queen’s Pageant Master, to join in the commemorations of the ending of the first world war in 1918. Plans are being prepared to have a meal of the era, speeches about the input of our City to the war effort, and to remember the loss of men from the City. The Beacon will be lit, along with an intended 999 others, across the country, and the last post will be played.
We currently meet at 19.30 on Tuesday evening by Zoom. Restrictions permitting we plan to restart ‘real’ meetings during August - 18.30 at Abbeydale Sports Club, Abbeydale Road South, S17 3LJ. Please contact us for more specific information.
