Derby Oddfellows head for the hills

Fancy a walking weekend away? Derby members fill us in on their annual rambling trip to the Lake District.

Fourteen Oddfellows from Derby District recently enjoyed a weekend away, walking amongst the breathtaking scenery of the Lake District.

Using the Windermere Hotel for their accommodation and base, the group enjoyed walks which took in a number of well-known local landmarks including the Aria Falls, Borrowdale, Wray Castle and of course, Lake Windermere itself.

The Lake District walking weekend has become something of a regular outing for Oddfellows from the Derby District. This is the sixth year the annual event has been staged. In addition, the group head away for a second walking weekend every year to Wales.

Derby District also stages walks closer to home on a fortnightly basis. These walks continue to attract new walkers of all abilities and recently included a ramble across Stanton Moor in the Peak District.

If you’d like to take part in one of the walks or other social activities in and around Derby, email or call Lorraine on 01332 345697.
