Christmas Update

As we move into the final weeks running up to Christmas, I'm pleased to say that my book Saddleworth Discovery Walks is now into its second print run. After only 3 months the intial print run sold out and with the number of daily orders increasing, it is now proving to be a popular Christmas Present.

When I first set out to write the book, I hoped that it would be well received in Saddleworth and surrounding areas, however, I could never have envisaged the interest and demand from further afield. Since the books publication in August, orders have been received from throughout the United Kingdom and as far away as Australia, New Zealand and Argentina. True testament that although people may move away from the area, whether short-term or longer, Saddleworth remains, for many, home and close to peoples heart.
I'd like to thank you all for purchasing a copy of Saddleworth Discovery Walks (many of you have ordered several copies), and for all the positive comments which many people have sent - Thank you.

Navigation Training Day

During the summer, I hosted a navigation training event which proved very popular. Due to an increased demand, I will be holding another training course early in the new year, which will help raise funds for Oldham Mountain Rescue Team. In order to ensure effective learning, the course will be limited to 8 people per session. If you are interested in learning or improving your map reading and navigation skills, please email your interest to . If there is more interest than the allocated number of places, I will arrange additional courses.

Christmas Belly Buster Walk

Walk off those Christmas pounds on a festive Discovery Walk, from the Cross Keys Inn.

Join us on a social 2 to 3 hour walk, to discovery the history of the ancient hamlet of Diggle and the Huddersfield Narrow Canal.

Meet at 10:00am for a 10:15 start. Suitable clothing and footwear required for the weather conditions. Drinks in the Cross Keys afterwards.

Once again thank you for purchasing your copy of Saddleworth Discovery Walks, which helps to raise vital funds for Oldham Mountain Rescue Team and Mahdlo Youth Zone (Oldham).

 Best wishes for Christmas and the coming new year,

 Chris Maylor
