SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Margaret Adams funeral arrangements

Margaret Adams was a keen fell walker and played tennis and golf before being introduced to orienteering at the age of 49. Living in Kendal Margaret took to orienteering quickly and started winning major events after only a couple of years in the sport. Joining SROC Margaret was part of a very competitive group of older women including Lorna Collett, Judith Wingham and Irene Munro.

Outside orienteering Margaret was heavily involved in the Ramblers Association, and penned many guided walk booklets. She was also a keen church goer.

Margaret ‘retired’ from orienteering around 15 years ago following heart surgery but remained active and still lead guided walks until around 5 years ago. She is survived by her daughter Sue (Barrie) and son Charlie, along with 4 grandchildren.

The funeral will take place at 12.30 on Tuesday 7th October at Kendal Parish Church.
After refreshments (venue to be confirmed) we will be making our way to Dalton Woodland burial ground for the committal.
Please dress appropriately for a woodland walk.
All welcome.
Charlie Adams

It is with sadness that we share the news that Margaret Adams, a long standing SROC member and winner of many club trophies, has recently passed away. Many older members will no doubt share our fond memories of Margaret. We hope to bring details of the funeral, which all past and present SROC members would be welcome to attend, when they are available.

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Ripley club nights

It is with regret that SROC are unable to continue to hold club nights at Ripley school on a Tuesday evening. The financial cost was too great for the numbers attending and many of those who did attend were non club members. SROC would like to thank Quentin, Julian and Mark for organising and running the sessions over the last few years.
