Dukeries U3A

Fine days in September enabled some members of Dukeries U3A to meet for outside activities whilst socially distancing. The Pathfinders Group walked a circular route from the conservation village of Linby, via part of the dismantled Great Northern Railway line and the site of the former Newstead pit to Newstead Abbey, then back through the abbey grounds and Papplewick.

Woodside Stables RDA

In common with most activities, 2020 has been a tough year for the charity – their plans and aspirations having been thwarted by lockdown. Their expenses in feeding the horses stay the same, their bills have soared with the need to buy in anti-viral products, and they had some unexpected veterinary bills for a horse who needed to go to hospital.
