Sad news – Dorrie Jones

Club members will be very sad to learn that Dorrie Jones died at home on December 17th. Her funeral is on Wednesday 29th January at St Mary’s Church Withersfield. We understand that Dorrie had not been well for a number of years.

Dorrie was a ‘larger than life’ character and contributed a great deal to Club walks and went on both hostel and coach trips away from Cambridge. After she stopped walking with us Dorrie was keen on visiting ‘open gardens’.

Thanks from the Yorkshire Dales National Park

At the Club’s recent AGM it was agreed to contribute £100 to the Yorkshire Dales National Park, to help pay for repairs to rights of way after the disastrous floods in early August this year. Reeth village, parts of Swaledale and Arkengarthdale were particularly badly hit. We have now received a ‘thank you’ letter, saying that our donation will be put towards the rebuilding of an important footbridge lost in the floods – one which carries the popular Coast to Coast path over a beck near the village of Low Row in Swaledale.

Sad news – Eric Chardin

It is very sad to report the death of Eric Chardin, a long-term member of the CRC. Eric walked with us regularly for many years and often led walks on our coach/hotel weekends. Only last year Eric re-visited Normandy as a Veteran.
