Notes from the Chair

As part of the Wiltshire & Swindon Area, South Wilts Group is currently taking part in the Walk Register trial – trying to be positive but not altogether enthusiastically. We’re willing to adapt to new technology and want to do our bit for Area, but the purpose and the benefit to members are by no means obvious. This illustrates the conflict that can develop when ‘bottom up’ voluntary activity meets ‘top down’ management.

As individuals and as a Group we benefit from our membership of the Ramblers – they handle our subscriptions and our funding, they provide insurance cover and are a valuable source of advice and expertise, whether or not members are aware of it. We should therefore cooperate with their requirements which have not so far been excessive.

Remember, this Walk Register initiative is only a trial and we will presumably be told about any findings and conclusions in due course. Meanwhile when joining our walks, please do remember to take your new membership card, together with your ICE details (maybe in the same card holder). And don’t worry if nobody has a smart phone or some cards won’t scan properly – the walk will still go ahead.      Many thanks for your cooperation.

Ian, Liz and Joan have organised another full and varied programme of walks taking us through to February. Many thanks to them and the valiant army of walk leaders without whom we really could not function.

Your Committee looks forward to seeing you at the AGM on November 20th which will include a fascinating talk ‘Warriors at the Clump’ from Wessex archaeologist Phil Andrews.

Anne Maryon-Davies (Chair)
