More sad news – Ron English

It is very sad to report that Ron English died in early June. Ron was a Club member for over 50 years and, during that time, walked with and led a huge number of walks. As someone very interested in and knowledgeable about local history, especially village churches, Ron could always be relied on for an anecdote and story about the landscape where we walk. And Club AGMs won’t be the same without a chat with Ron.

We hope to be able to let members know of a charity for donations in Ron’s memory.

Parking at Village Halls

Walks’ organisers and leaders are reminded that it is CRC policy to contact Village and Church Halls to book car parking ahead of advertising walk details. The car parks are private and it is important that the Club checks on availability in advance with managers; a Hall and its car park may well have been booked by another user. In some cases a fee is payable. Details of who to contact regarding Village Halls are generally available on Parish Council websites.

Sad news – Margaret Rishbeth

Longstanding members of the CRC will have fond memories of Margaret Rishbeth. Some years ago Margaret moved from her home in Hinton Way Cambridge to live near relatives in Sheffield – but before that she was a very regular CRC leader for decades. We have now learned that she died recently.
