- Stockport Humanists Social
A group of us meet on the fourth Wednesday of each month at the Rhode Island Café in Stockport town centre. This is an informal gathering with no set agenda; it’s just nice to sit with a drink and chat with like-minded people. This event provides an alternative for those folk that prefer not to be out in the evening. There is no charge. We normally sit upstairs where there is a large bright seating area. Please do come and join us, you’ll be made most welcome. If you have questions please ask them in the comments, or contact Christine: [masked]
- Buxton Ramble
Led by Pat Thompson ([masked]) After assembling at 11.15am we shall walk through the town to Poole's Cavern car park where the walk starts and where there is alternative parking (not free). If the car park is full, you can park on the surrounding roads. Members parking there should meet us the bottom of the steps leading to Grinlow Woods where the walk begins at about 11.45am. We shall walk up the trail, proceed along the "ride", and up to Solomon's Temple, then back through the woods back to the Cavern car park. The total length of the walk from the station is no longer than 5 miles. You are advised to bring a drink and a packed lunch, though it is possible to purchase food at the Cavern cafe beside the car park. Pat is hoping for a fine day but, in the event of heavy rain, it may be possible instead to do a tour of the main buildings in the centre of Buxton including the Crescent (in process of restoration), the recently refurbished Octagon and the Devonshire dome, once the Duke of Devonshire's riding stables. All welcome: especially folk from GMH, Stockport, and Macclesfield groups The Buxton train leaves Manchester at 10.11am and Stockport at 10.21am arriving in Buxton at 11.06am. The 199 bus from Stockport (about every half an hour), stops outside the station. Pat will meet you in the car park outside the station. There is parking outside the station or in the Waitrose car park nearby. There is a train back to Manchester every half hour until 6.00pm when it is hourly.
