Our first visit to Delamere Forest was a great success and our thanks go especially to Russell Wardle and Captain Bob Lightowler who acted as starters on both days and then presented the prizes, and how we escaped without anything more than just an occasional heavy shower, I am not sure. We are a fortunate bunch.
