Hi folks,
Just a gentle reminder for you all about the Alderley Edge trip on the 9th September, kindly being run by the DCC. We currently have 8 people signed up (there are spare places).
If you're one of the registered attendees, please can you check that you can still make the trip (in case you signed up months ago!)?

Further details on the trip should be added in the next few days, but for now it's meeting at 10am, at the Wizard pub- see the event's page for a location map.

Quick bump for this.

A decision will be made on the day for which mine to visit- depending on attendees interests.

DCC are doing their open weekend on 2nd/3rd September - I presume they'll be doing their usual Wood Mine trips but they may be willing to take you into one of the other ones if you ask nicely?

Much as I'd like to come over for the AN trip, I'm going to be at Magpie all day Sunday doing the blacksmithing display - two full days on the trot would attract the wrath of SWMBO...

Oh God of Sarcasm, thanks for everything...

Hello!

Yes we are doing our usual open weekend on the first weekend of September, which of course all BCA members are more than welcome to turn up to, and Wood Mine will be lit up. However it's an odd one, as the open weekend is geared towards the public, so it's unlikely you will get to see as much as you will on a full day trip with just mine explorers, (unless you camp over with us)!

We usually also do one public trip to West Mine during the open weekend, and there are usually some members who go off to do the boat trip, or to other places but this is not guaranteed, and the times not fixed. But if you are willing to camp over and stay for the open weekend, you would get to see a lot.

I can confirm parking in the National Trust car park will be free for aditnow members on Saturday 9th September.

Regards,
Lauren Big Grin
