Peter Sutherland is happy to be sponsored for the walk he has planned starting Sunday 14th. and finishing Sunday 21st. October, contributions will go to the Alzheimers Society, Taffmog's chosen charity for this year.

Peter intends to walk 100 miles of the Coast to Coast Walk from Robin Hood's Bay to Keld, broadly half way. Peter has completed the whole Coast to Coast walk Robin Hood's Bay to St Bee's, over 190 miles, twice before but time does not allow for the full traverse on this occasion. Some Taffmoggers have already committed to sponsor Pete, provided he completes the 100 miles!

Please email Pete (gloriabrooks908@ymail.com) to sign up and he will attend the November noggin in Usk to collect your contributions which will be much appreciated.He would like to make a minimum of £100 representing £1 for every mile walked - maybe we can exceed Pete's expectations?


If you would like to sponsor Pete and can't make Usk, you can either BACS your money to:

Dave Rymer says,

 "direct payments MUST identify the payment is for the TaffMog Charity (Alzheimer's Society). The reference "CHARITY" will suffice, then I'll know where the money should go."

   Stuart's October mutterings.   

Autumn has arrived and as there has been very little activity here in Wales. Rather surprisingly no one took up the challenge of organising a run in October: it might look as if we have gone into hibernation early.

Congratulations to Peter for completing his sponsored hundred mile walk on part of the Coast to Coast Walk. In doing so he has raised over £200 so far for our charity of the year, the Alzheimer’s Society. Thanks to Peter and everyone who supported him.

Dianne also deserves mention for zipping over Penrhyn Quarry. This is Europe’s longest and the World’s fastest zip wire. Dianne reached a speed of 89mph (head first) and, reassuringly, Haydn was on hand at the bottom to catch her. Dianne did this for Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital Charity in memory of her father who passed away recently. It’s not too late to give by going to www.justgiving.com/Dianne-Croll

The Ty Risha Noggin has seen a slight fall in attendance that has been, in part, attributed to the way that seating arrangement at the Ty Risha has been changed. Any suggestions for a suitable alternative will be much appreciated.

In the words of Bruce Bairnsfather’s WW1 character Old Bill:

The Usk Noggin, as usual, was well attended with the Dinas Powis four making the trek East.

Jan, Our ever reliable West Wales correspondent reports:

“There were a few missing faces at this months noggin, but still a good turn out of nine couples. A warm welcome was extended to Martin and Shireen Thomas from Pontlliw.

It is with sadness we bid a fond farewell to Margaret Rolinson, who is moving to Holywell. We wish her well, and extended a warm welcome to join us at our noggin if she ever finds herself back in the area.”

There are now only a few weeks to go before we head to the Metropole for the Winter Weekend and it’s never too late to let Haydn have those candid snaps that keep us amused.

If anyone has any ideas for runs, trips away or anything to keep us amused in the coming year could you please let Jackie know ahead of the planning meeting.
