A Merry Christmas from Joy…..

Joy Tripp

What a shame to see already the return of mud on our walks but the variety of underfoot conditions is part of living in a country with seasons! 

It has been a busy few months for the Ramblers Area Committee and I want to thank the Executive members, the Footpath Committee and the Lost Ways Group.

Thanks also to those involved in organising our 25th Anniversary Celebrations, the Queen Eleanor walks, and the walkers who took part.

  The Annual General Meeting took place on 23 November at Wadenhoe, thanks to the 20/40’s Group who hosted the event.  Thanks to all those who attended in such wet conditions.

The 2014 Area AGM

It was an early start for one of the 20’s to 40’s walk leaders who recced their walk before getting the Wadenhoe Village Hall ready for the AGM.  As it rained all morning two intrepid groups of ramblers completed the walks as planned returning to much needed refreshments.

As mentioned in the December Newsletter the unratified minutes of the Area AGM are now available:

For the meeting this year, the Footpath Committee had put some information and photographs together on stands highlighting some of the work that they do.

The Next Ten Years of the Ramblers

Nationally, two Working Parties set up after the General Council of Ramblers, have both recently published their Draft proposals.

  • One is on Vision, looking at where Ramblers may be in 10 years’ time: 
  • the other is on Governance

Download the proposals from the main Ramblers web site

Christine Grant, Ramblers Director of Services, Guest at the A.G.M. urged members to look at these documents and to respond by completing the attached survey. The deadline is 31 December 2014. For more information look out for the forthcoming article in the next edition of “Walk”. The Area Committee will be discussing these issues shortly.
