Sad loss of Mick Beard

It is with great sadness that we must report the death on 22nd September 2009 of our group treasurer Mick Beard after a long battle against cancer. Our thoughts are with his wife Sheila and their family at this sad time. Mick and Sheila have been active members of the group for many years, leading walks, helping on 100 checkpoints and as invaluable members of the organising committees of events including the Elsecar Skelter and our annual long walk. Mick will be missed for his quiet unassuming manner, his sense of humour and also for leading the singing at the Christmas dinner! We will all miss you Mick.
