Planner/Organiser's Comments

Many thanks to everyone who turned out on Wednesday night for a wander around Birch Vale for the first of this year's Countryside Score series. The highlights of the evening were reported to be the summit of the Lantern Pike; the fine specimen bull standing guard at one of the controls; and the never-ending Chinese buffet. Many thanks to Steve Lang to resolving my battles with Condes: see you all at the Church House in Sutton on June 25th.
