CHAT FROM THE CHAIR

Our much-postponed New Forest trip may have worked to our advantage after all, had we been there in March we would have been rained on by meteorite shards arriving from outer space.  So when (if?) we eventually get there keep a sharp eye out for unusual looking rocks, no doubt the local museum would be delighted to add to their collection.
[Editor’s Note: – This was written before the cancellation of the New Forest trip.]

In an effort to stay healthy my aunt Evadne has been eating plenty of omega3-rich fish.  Last week she opened the cupboard and a tin of sardines fell out and caught her on the head.  Luckily the injury is only super-fish-oil.  So she should be fully recovered in time to join our barbecue-in-the-paddock on Sunday 1st August to mark my 50 years with RRC – see page 5.  Please bring your own garden chair and notify Tom or Colin if you are coming in good time to help with catering numbers.  Hope to see you there.

Who would have guessed it?  Be careful if you go down to Tokers Green as it takes its aged name as the spot where folks took drugs, especially marijuana.  Still perhaps a spliff might ease the pain as ramblers take in yet more sad news about climate change.  Temperatures rising, erratic rainfall, longer droughts are going to damage tea growing in Kenya and beyond and even more scary, change the flavour of our favourite post-ramble cuppa.

Keep smiling and Happy Summer Rambling,

Happy Rambling, (if and when).

Tom Harrison, Chairman
