Mansfield Brewery came up trumps when they heard about the Southwell Leisure Centre's Men's Fitness Group and their activity weekend in the Derbyshire Peak District.

They provided each participant with a Mansfield Brewery sweatshirt and some very welcome free samples of their beverage during their stay at the Wheatsheaf Hotel, Baslow.

The instructors, Jim Munro and Petet Coghill had organised a strenuous and challenging programme of night hikes, around Chatsworth, rock climbing, abseiling, orienteering and a brisk walk from Baslow to Grindleford station.

The intrepid group survived to raise their glasses once more. Shown with the landlord and two of his staff are: Back row (L to R) Richard Woodward, Keith Douglass, John Hoppitt, John Anderson & Paul Dewing. Front (L to R) Chris Mercer, Jim Munro, Dave Pallett, Peter Coghill and Malcolm Gamble.
