What we've been up to

The Chairman's report

Dave Jones

I thought it would be good to update members on various activities/events that have occurred since the last newsletter was produced. Not everyone has time to send information in to the newsletter editor (Joe Priest) but if you are doing anything please inform him so we can place something in the newsletter, the newsletter can only be successful based on the information that is received from the members.

Below is a list of activities that club members have been doing:

A big well done to Ann Parrot on achieving Everest Base Camp on her recent trip to the Himalayas.

Two members have had birthdays within the last week, belated Happy Birthday to Jonathon Howells & Dave Nock, I only found this out via Facebook and thought this would be worth a mention.

A good coach meet was had to Braithwaite in April, a little disappointing with only 38 members, however weather was very good and it was good to see some new individuals on the coach. As always we need your support to make the coach meets successful.

I attended the British Mountaineering Council AGM on Saturday 16th April at the YHA Castleton in the Peak District. This was scheduled for the entire weekend, but I travelled up early on the Saturday Morning. It consisted of the AGM in the morning and a club seminar in the afternoon.

Special thanks to Fred Hammond & Mike Thompson for arranging wood to be taken to WBMC hut. Without this support there would be no supplies.

There have been two high powered torches supplied at the club hut; these have been issued in the event of a power failure.

Club member Peter Kane has been busy moving home, we hope the move went well and that you are both happy in your new home. Peter has been missing his daily walks and cycling.

Lee Grainger looks to be having a good time dirt buggying in Fuerteventura.

Andrew Wright has recently been to Llanwddyn in North Wales, I can only presume that Andy visited Lake Vyrnwy.
