Bowland Fell Runners News: July 2012

News: July 2012

I’ve been in conversations with Yiannis Tridimas, who many of you will know. Yiannis has already placed a plaque in tribute to Bill at the trig point on Totridge but now has asked me to pass on the information that there will be a walk/run from Chipping up onto the tops on Saturday 11th August meeting at 12.00 in the carpark in the middle of the village. Bill’s ashes will be scattered on the fells near where he died. Yiannis has said that everyone should feel welcome to attend, especially his fellow Clayton runners......Lee Dowthwaite (Bowland Club Secretary)
