HIKING WEEKLY NEWS - 21st March 2016 (Final Post of the 2015-16 Committee!)

Hiking Weekly News

Hello Hikers!

Well the Broomby Administration certainly went out with a bang on Friday night. What a fantastic AGM! On behalf of the hiking club I would like to congratulate every member of our new committee for successfully being elected. I think everyone who wanted to be on the committee got a position, which is fab!

So at a glance here is your new committee 2016/ 2017:
President: Emma Cooper
Secretary: Sophie Walker
Treasurer: James Nicholson
Trip Secretary: Ben Maybee
Gear Secretary: Patrick Sugden
Web Secretary: Ed Mason
Social Secretary: Tom Fullen
General Committee: Roy Middup
General Committee: Katie Smith

I think it’s fair to say the club is in safe hands smile emoticon Here’s to another successful year!

***Easter Trip Notice***
For those going on the Easter Trip for the week (11th-17th April)

Please meet at Cromer Terrace at 10am sharp on Monday 11th April. 
Make sure you bring your sleeping bags! 
Roll mats won’t be necessary
Maybe bring some group games for the evenings
Bring enough lunches for up until Friday as there aren’t many shops nearby. You can re-stock food on Friday for the weekend
Make sure you have enough clothing for the week, but don’t go overboard. (I still have visions of Jessie dragging a wheelie suitcase down the path and needing two people to lift it over the style. (Classic Essex!) 
And then just bring general hiking gear you would normally bring for a weekend trip.
Take some cash with you for the pub as they don’t have cash machines on every corner (Although knowing Snowden…)

Those leaving from Leeds for the weekend only (15th- 17th April)

Meet like you normally would for a weekend trip on Friday 15th April, 5:15pm on Cromer Terrace.
Again you will only need sleeping bags as we have beds at the weekend accommodation as well!
For all gear queries for the weekend, take a look at our websitewww.luuhc.com/gear

On a personal note, this will be my last Hiking Weekly News as your secretary. It may seem that I moan all the time about emails and waiting lists, but in all seriousness out of the 4 years I have been in the club, this has been my favourite! You’re all such a lovely, fun and downright crazy bunch of people and that has been the most rewarding thing about serving the club as secretary this year. I wish you all the best for the future and of course I’ll be back for more hiking adventures next year smile emoticon

Now over to Sophie!!

Have an egg-citing Easter! (couldn't resist!)
