PLAQUE FOUND

The plaque which was erected in 1969 to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of the Co-op Ramblers  

disappeared from its place at Longshaw.

The plaque referred to Alderman Ballard who founded the Co-op Ramblers in 1920.

 

The plaque is at grid reference SK262847

Dr Ballard Plaque

On 20th June 2021 we received an email from Longshaw Rangers to say that they had erected a new plaque to Alderman Ballard in its original position
It can now be viewed at the above grid reference.


As 2020 was the Centenary year for the club, we have adopted a signpost from Peak and Northern Footpaths Society. 

This signpost is situated in the Limb Valley. 


The signpost is number 478 and is situated at grid reference SK299834

The signpost has now had the plaque fixed to it.     

These are the photographs of the completed sign.





 

                        CAR PARKING IN SHEFFIELD          

 Sheffield Council car parking charges are increasing from June 2022.
Road parking and surface car parks on a Sunday are currently 2 per day.
This will increase to 1 per hour on a Sunday from 8:30 a.m. to 20:30 p.m.!!
While it is an admirable decision to decrease air pollution in the city, it is also another
nail in the coffin for city centre shops.
 Not everyone has a convenient bus they can use early on a Sunday.
 If they want to connect with the X17 at 0835 from Sheffield Interchange to Matlock,
or the 258 at 0855 to Ladybower for example, what do they do?
