South Bank Ramblers

Summary of 2016 AGM

South Bank Ramblers Annual General Meeting 19th November 2016

Following a walk via Crystal Palace, 45 members settled down for lunch at St Faith’s Hall, North Dulwich. With soups carefully colour contrasted, and cakes worthy of a Great British Bake Off, participants enjoyed the film show of photos from walks during the year. Tricky stiles, fabulous vistas and just a few cute animals, people reminisced of sunny days in our wonderful country side. With a quiz to identify stations from OS maps, Roger Sugden showed how well he knows our walks and won the prize.

As for the formal business…the annual reports from officers were summarised and the election for the Committee took place.
