Three Peaks Update

Posted on July 9, 2009 in Ronnie's News

The National Three Peak Challenge

I know I’ve told you this before but I, and three of my colleagues here at the bar, are doing the National Three Peak Challenge to raise money for the East Cheshire Hospice. We are doing it on Tuesday 21 and Wednesday 22 July and we are attempting to complete the ascent and descent of each peak in a 24 hour period. The 24 hours includes travelling between each peak. It costs £5,500 each day to keep the hospice functioning so our aim is to raise £5,500 from this venture. You can donate at

Completing the three peaks in 24 hours is quite some challenge. Yesterday as part of our preparations, our Chef Chris Hall, Business Development Manager Martin Holmes and I climbed Snowdon. Snowdon is allegedly the easiest of the three peaks in the Challenge. Well believe me by the time we’d completed the climb and back again in 4 hours 20 minutes we knew just how gruelling this whole challenge is going to be.

But the sense of achievement of doing Snowdon yesterday was immense. Consequently the celebratory beers and cocktails last night went straight to my head so I was tucked up in bed fairly early for a change. The preparations continue next week with us attempting Scafell Pike in the Lake District, the English leg of it all, so I’ll let you know how we get on. Once again you can donate online at so please give generously.

Anyway, just a few mentions of what’s on at Ronnie’s over the next few days. Tonight we have James Bright spinning the tunes, tomorrow we have Paul Hibbert and Mr Rylan and on Saturday we have Steve Mack. I know you’d expect me to say this but they really are superb DJs and they put an awful lot of work into making the atmosphere at this bar spot on.

Sunday sees live music from The Tensions from 5pm. Don’t forget we start the Sunday gourmet BBQ in the early afternoon so get here early and savour the courtyard in all its continental splendour and finish off the day with a dose of excellent rock’n’roll. On Monday next week we have something a little different going on in the Front Room. Spirit Matters with the gifted clairvoyant John Harrop alongside communicator and messenger with the angels Elaine Downs promises to be a very enlightening and uplifting evening.

If you’re interested in spiritual discussion or would like a private reading then please come along. Private readings should be booked in advance though and you can do this by emailing . If you want further information and a better understanding of what to expect on Monday then visit .

Tuesday next week is the ever evolving and wonderful Open Mic night with Chester Le Flange hosting once again. It really is my favourite night of the week because of the people who have the balls to get up and play. It’s easy to do, just book your spot with Chester and off you go. Great fun.

And finally Wednesday sees the launch of another regular live music night at Ronnie’s with the Merchants of Cool performing. Then it’s straight into the Dukebox where you can provide your favourite tunes and we’ll play them for you on our superb sound system.

Oh and I nearly forgot we launch our new menu on Monday too. More fabulous freshly cooked food prepared by the talented Chris Hall to raise the standards of Macclesfield bistro cuisine once again. And we’re offering a free bottle of house wine with every two main courses, you really should try it.

See you soon.
