Crawley & North Sussex Ramblers Group
2017 - 2018 Winter Newsletter
Another program of walks just about finished, again it has been a varied collection of walks most of which most have been well supported by the group and by members of other groups, even in the hot humid days this summer, with one of the walks having 17 walkers, A big thank you to all the walk leaders for their time and effort in putting together the walks for us & to the car drivers for giving lifts and car sharing. Also to our program secretary for putting together the list of walks on the program. The group is always looking for new walk leaders. If you feel you would like to give it a try you can ask one of the walk leaders for guidance in putting together a walk they would be most helpful.
Membership of the group this spring summer increased slightly from 203 to 206. Three members of the group manned an information table in a room at Crawley Hospital held for the staff in the early summer. Whether this leads to new members remains to be seen.
The groups A G M is November 2nd at 2pm. The meeting usually lasts about a hour not a lot of time out of your day. This year will be at Crawley Baptist Church, Crabtree Road, West Green, post code RH11 7XJ. PLEASE MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO ATTEND. Diana Head has decided to step down from the post of group secretary THIS POST NEEDS TO FILLED.
This is my sixth year in the post of chairman. The Ramblers do not recommend that the posts of treasurer, secretary and chairman are filled by the same people for more than six year. I think it is time somebody else stepped into the post of chairman.
NONE OF THE COMMITTEE POSTS ARE NOT THAT TIME CONSUMING, ARDUOUS, OR DIFFICULT, YOU NEVER KNOW TILL YOU TRY YOU MIGHT EVEN ENJOY DOING IT. If any of the above posts are left vacant the group cannot function in the present form.
There are also vacant posts on the AREA COUNCIL these are treasurer and chairman if these posts are not filled at the area AGM in January all groups in the Sussex area will have liaise Ramblers head office.
The Christmas Lunch this year will be on Saturday 16th December 12.30pm for 1pm at THE WHITE HART Crawley, High Street. Names and choices to Diana HEAD by the 2nd December.
