Mike Andrew Memorial Walking Weekend 11th – 13th October 2019. There are spaces on this fantastic weekend for members, held at The George Inn, Hubberholme, Yorkshire (Great food, fellowship, and fun compulsory, walking optional). Please contact Pete Chapman for more details.
In addition to an excellent speaker at our meeting last night (who gave a talk entitled “One man and his coracle”), our esteemed Chairman presented Vice-Chairman David Dimeloe with his chain of office. Minutes from the meeting have been distributed at the speed of light to members who have subscribed to receive “Member emails”.
