Another year draws to a close and a new one is about to begin.
Cirencester Group pulled out all the stops in organising the 2015 AGM for the Gloucestershire Area . Over 50 keen ramblers arrived on December 12th to be greeted by willing helpers with tea and coffee.
The proceedings resulted in a revised committee and some questions from those present who also learned about the footpath with a lake that North Cotswold Group had helped resolve after some 20 years, a footpath around a lake that Cirencester Group had managed to re-open after seeking funding for a new bridge, and the bridge that Forest of Dean Group installed to reopen the footpath at Upper Lyd.
There’s more to ramblers than walking and we’d been featured on BBC Radio Gloucestershire through the year.
Richard May Ramblers Trustee joined us from his Norfolk Area and ran through news from Central Office in London and gave an update on the Big Path Watch.
Cirencester prepared the feast everyone had brought to share. After lunch Richard joined a few intrepid explorers for a walk to the Roman Villa returning over the old railway line. Luckily the earlier rain held off for the trip but discovered a newly formed marsh..
Thanks to everyone who made it a unique day on which to look forward to 2016.
