Dartford & Gravesham Group

Group & Social News




It was lovely to see so many members at the AGM on 15th November!

This year we were treated to a very interesting talk by Anthony Poulton-Smith about the origins of British place names, and the Social Committee laid on a lovely cheese and wine supper.

For anyone who couldn’t make the meeting, I just wanted to let you know about a few changes to the group Committee.

Steve had volunteered to take on the entering and maintaining of the group’s walks on the Ramblers website, so he is now the Publications Officer.

Beverley volunteered to take on the editing of the group’s Newsletter, and will roll this into the wider role of Publicity Officer, which had been vacant for several years. Beverly would welcome any suggestions as to new ways of publicising the group’s activities, as well as contributions for the Newsletters.

These changes left me with the residual jobs of printing the Newsletter, formatting and printing the Walks Programme, and updating the group’s summary pages on the Ramblers and Kent Ramblers websites. As the Vice Chairman’s post was vacant, after the meeting I thought that instead of creating a new post I could roll my residual jobs into the role of Vice Chairman. This has been agreed by the Committee.

We’re still short of a Footpath Secretary and a Footpath Clearance Officer, so if you’d like to find out about either of these roles please let me know and I’ll point you in the right direction!
