All the time spent and hard work put in over the last two years came to an exciting culmination on Friday, 19th June, when the new Ridgeway Partnership was formally launched. The many organisations and individuals involved in the discussions leading up to the formation of this new structure for The Ridgeway came together at Nuffield Place, by courtesy of the National Trust, itself one of the Partners, to celebrate the event. For more news, have a look at our News & Events Page.
We are pleased to announce that the Committee, at its Meeting on 28th July, co-opted Anthony Burdall to the Committee pending his proposal for election as our new Chairman at the AGM next Spring. Anthony is a Civil Engineer living in Faringdon, retired after 30 years with Halcrow and P&O. He has since contributed to U3A in Faringdon and Thames Valley Network, walks, sails his own boat and is interested in photography. We welcome Anthony to the Association, and look forward to many years of his leadership.
