Email from J. Stenson - N.Yorkshire LDWA Secretary to all Groups

"Hello-I should quickly introduce myself as the Secretary of North Yorkshire LDWA group and also part of the 2017 Hundred organising committee.

May I please ask you to spare a minute to peruse this message-thank you.

As you know each Group has its core members along with a list of those that have chosen to be kept up to date as an “associate member” of an alternative group.

I recently attended a social walk upon which there were several members of Cleveland Group and our discussions highlighted a glaring gap in our (NY group) communication network which in turn leads to this message/request.

There were several of those attending that walk that had invaluable experience of participating or assisting on Hundreds and more importantly wanted to help with the 2017 event being hosted by our group. However they had not chosen NY as their associate group and therefore were not aware of our request for help – 2 people came forward immediately and so I feel there are more out there!

We have commenced a master list of volunteer helpers (and in some instances their expertise) so it maybe that this message will reach people who have already offered to assist.

May I first of all thank those who have volunteered already and in turn apologise for this duplication. I think you will appreciate the need to cast our net wide to ensure no one misses this great opportunity to be part of what we expect and believe will be a great Yorkshire 100.

You will have seen in Strider that the 2017 Hundred was titled “The Crosses 100” but subsequently we feel that “ North York Moors 100 “ is more descriptive of this great area that we all walk in. We expect to formalise the name shortly.

We are looking for assistance but please do not be put off by any restriction of your time availability or perceived skills — everyone will be welcome and we will always find a role for you. I first got involved with marshalling the marshal’s walk of the Scottish 100 and soon realised how rewarding this was and certainly opened my eyes/thinking to the great work that all volunteers provide — so maybe the Marshall’s Walk is something you might want to help with thereby keeping yourself free to participate in the later event!

Whatever you want to contribute will be greatly appreciated by both walkers and the organising committee.

If you can help then we are initially asking for you to drop an email to Caroline Wandless at rogerandcarolineann@btinternet.co or myself at jpstenton@gmail.com so that we can draw up a master list of those that want to help in 2017 – I know that sounds a long way off and you might have alternative plans closer to the time but hey we can overcome that — just let us have, in the short term, your name, contact details and any preferences you might have.

Now here is the ”rub” — we have agreed a meet of the100 committee on 23rd September – if you are able to respond before this then that would be really great help but please feel free to approach us later if an early decision is unavoidable.

Thank you – I look forward to welcoming many of you onto our volunteers list!

 Regards John Stenton

Secretary, North Yorkshire LDWA Group, Mem No 2670, 5-9-14

Footnote:

Cleveland Group have already volunteered to run a checkpoint for the N.Yorkshire Moors100 - Eva Bowes will be acting as the link for this, anyone wanting to help on the checkpoint should contact Eva on the website email address.

 

 

 

 

 

  ********* 

Cleveland LDWA Group has been established since 1982, we are a friendly bunch who welcome new members and visitors alike.

 

We endeavour to do two social walks each month, see Future Events Link. We walk on the Cleveland Hills, North Yorkshire Moors, Yorkshire & Durham Dales, Coast and occasionally in the Lake District.   All walks are led at a moderate pace approx 3miles an hour unless otherwise stated.

 

We suggest visitors or new members speak with the walks leader/ or walks secretary prior to attending a walk. Unfortunately for dog owners we have a policy of  "Registered Assistance Dogs" only on walks.

 

We hold Group Meetings every second Thursday in the month at The Fox Covert, top of Leven Bank, near Yarm at 8.00pm, the numbers of members attending the meetings varies between 15-25 members, the meetings are informal and last for about an hour.  Come along and join in, you will be very welcome.

 

We organize a yearly challenge event in August - The Hanging Stone Leap, 24/13 miles on moor, forestry and road including Roseberry Topping, starting from Guisborough

 

 Registered Assistance Dogs only allowed on walk
