Alt-Sheff Events http://alt-sheff.org/rss.php The guide to Sheffield's radical, alternative, ethical business and groups Walking Politics for the over Fifties http://alt-sheff.org/events/5233/ http://alt-sheff.org/events/5233/ Fri 20 Apr 2018, 10.30am, meet at main Hunters Bar entrance to Endcliffe Park *** This is a group aimed at retired and semi-retired people, socialists, environmentalists, feminists and like-minded people. They walk on the first and third Fridays of each month.The idea is to do the same walk from Endcliffe Park entrance to the cafe at Forge Dam - about four miles in total - and talk about books, films, the environment or whatever crops up. Actually, they rarely discuss politics, it is a social group, and the walk is incidental, although the scenery along the river is delightful.Walkers should wear suitable clothing and understand that they take part at their own risk. After a stop at the cafe, return is usually by 1pm.
