Calling all quizzers... NWR needs you!

All NWR members should have received an email about about the NWR 'Eggheads' Team.  We are hoping to apply for the next round of filming to see if NWR are smart enough to beat the Eggheads (I know we are!) but we need to get a team together before the 5th December; less than a week away!

Please contact Sara Jane, our website and publicity coordinator ASAP if you would like to take part... and if you are not a whizz at quizzing then make sure you encourage anyone else in your group you think fits the bill.

If you didn't receive the email and want more information please contact SJ by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. - but be quick!

Did any groups struggle with the TTT this year? Or was it just us?

Yep, we found it difficult, and in some cases, impossible! Hopefully the answers will be published soon?

Up Hill and Down Dale - Women Rambling On Again

Up Hill and Down Dale - Women Rambling On Again

Four members of Arnold NWR joined with around 50 other NWR members recently for a very enjoyable day event organised by members of Trentham NWR, Staffordshire Moorlands NWR and Marilyn Vigurs, Area Organiser.

The venue was The Tea Junction at Hulme End (http://www.teajunctionhulmeend.co.uk/). In the morning we enjoyed an illustrated talk by eminent local photographer Simon Watkinson (www.world-infocus.co.uk). Simon entertained us with wonderful photographs from around the world and closer to home, showing how you can achieve great results by getting up early, going out in all weathers, and always having your camera to hand for any unexpected opportunity! Also how to improvise and make use of what equipment is to hand.

After a lovely lunch provided by the team at The Tea Junction (including feta cheesecake...yummy!!), we split into groups for an afternoon of activities. The more active amongst us set off for a 5-mile ramble; another group embarked on a treasure hunt in nearby Hartington. The largest group went with Simon a short distance to Beresford Dale, for an afternoon workshop on how to improve our photography using our various types of camera, tablets, phones etc. We learned how to use a variety of settings that some of us didn’t realise our cameras had! Simon patiently showed us how to access the menu options on our cameras and choose appropriate settings for the conditions. We were then set loose for a couple of hours, to wander along the dale and experiment taking different pictures and changing the camera/phone settings to compensate for bright sunlight and strong shadows and reflections.
We all reconvened for tea and cake and closing remarks having had a most enjoyable day in glorious sunshine!

Thanks to all the organisers and to the wonderful catering team at The Tea Junction!
