Dates for the diary

Keep an eye on this page for all the events and meetings which the Friends are involved in. Put the dates in your diary! I will endeavour to keep this up to date with work party dates, sales stand dates and other relevant events.

All Social meetings are held at Ironville Church Hall, Casson St, Ironville NG16 5NN and start at 7.30pm. In case you get confused when you get there - find a picture of the hall here!

Northern Section Work Parties generally meet at High Peak Junction at 9.30am and finish around 2.30pm. Tools are provided but volunteers are asked to bring boots, lunch and hot drink.
