December 12th 2007 Ashburton

Led by Ernie

A bright chilly day for an excellent walk followed by lunch at the Victoria Inn.

The annual tradition of presenting Ernie’s Stirring Prize was abandoned this year as it had previously been given to Derek in honour of his many years service to the Group.

Alan & Daphne formally handed over the Walks Co-ordinater baton to Joy and in return were presented with long service medals by Ernie.

In reply Alan gave a splendidly comical dissertation on the joys of belonging to the Group, a typical comment being “…such a nice bunch of people, unfortunately none of them here today”

Ernie presented his usual not-to-be-missed humorous summary of the years highlights (click here to read the transcript) and Tony handed out copies of a DVD of photos taken on the walks set to music..
