CHAT FROM THE CHAIR
I'm delighted to say that Terry has recently joined my Happy Socks Club. Happy socks are the pair that you put on in the morning when you feel especially happy, but also when you feel a little low and in need of something to cheer you up. They really need to be a bright, cheerful colour, mine are yellow. What colour did you choose Terry?
Rambling Club Chairmen can get assaulted from all angles. On a recent walk we took lunch at the side of the lake at Moor Park Nature Reserve and were joined by a flock of Canada geese that struggled up the embankment to watch us in the hope of a few crumbs. I failed to spot one cheeky chap who sneaked up behind me, stretched out a long neck and snatched a bit of chewy bar from my hand. Quod vigilate as we Latin scholars say.
Our New Forest trip in the Spring will be to one of my favourite areas, keep an eye out for the ponies' tails which are cut in different ways to show which area of the Forest is theirs. Although they are semi-feral, they are all owned by the Commoners who have right of pasture for their animals. Then at the rear of the church in Lyndhurst is the grave of Alice for whom Lewis Carroll spun his tales. Be sure also to fit in a visit to the Rufus Stone where the aforesaid King met with a grizzly "accident". Just an arrow's shot away is the Sir Walter Tyrrell pub, where our more sensitive members might recover from their visit to the Stone.
Happy Rambling Folks.
Tom Harrison - Chairman
