Events

Welcome to the Events page.  For every project it helps to have a core team of volunteers who help plan and run the event.  This means you only commit to that event.  If you have an interest in planning, running or taking part in events at County level we would love to hear from you.  

 

We would also like any ideas of events that you would like to see County put on.  Have a look at what events are currently on and get in touch using the events email.

Sunday 29th May - Shining Tor / Goyt Valley

 

The third walk is on 29th May and will start in the Goyt Valley and we will walk up to Shining Tor and along the ridge to Pym’s Chair before walking back down into the Goyt Valley. The route is 7 miles, and includes a longer incline at the start of the walk. We will take this at a steady pace, and the views are well worth it at the top! All abilities, family, friends and dogs are welcome. Due to ground nesting bird season all dogs will need to be kept on a lead for the duration of the walk. The walk will start from Errwood Reservoir carpark (SK17 6GJ), at 9.15 am to start walking at 9.30am.  Please click here to book
