Notes from the Chair
At our AGM in November I took over as Acting Chair from John Foskett to whom we owe a debt of gratitude for doing the job so scrupulously for the past four years. His dedication and attention to detail make him a hard act to follow; we thank him and wish him and Sue well on their travels. Thanks are also due to Christine Gilbert who has stood down as Treasurer but will fortunately continue to support the Light Gang.
Ramblers are now being urged to carry ICE cards with them on walks and we are distributing them to members as fast as we can get them from head office. An alternative for owners of smart phones is to put ICE details on your phones. Please cooperate with this simple request. Without wishing to overdramatise, it could save your life.
Our February-May programme is full of walks across beautiful South Wilts and beyond. Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays we offer a wide range of distances and terrain thanks to our willing walk leaders. Unfortunately we are having difficulty finding enough leaders for the Sunday walks, although the turn-out is good. Please think about leading – there will be lots of people to advise andsupport you.
