A Farewell

Melvin, from Nicholson Court, has been a valued member of our walking group and we are sorry that he is leaving the village. Before joining he hadn’t walked regularly but from the start he showed determination to get up the Derbyshire hills. He always succeeded and his beaming face when he reached the top won’t be forgotten.

On a hot day we took the wrong path which added considerably to the distance but Melvin just took his time and didn’t grumble. We heard on the grapevine that he was worse for wear the following day, nevertheless he was there for the next walk.

Our group has lost its qualified first aider and joke teller extraordinaire ! We will miss him.

Tidza Ramblers.
