London Lecture 26 April - changes to the programme


Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond his control,
Tom Livingstone has been forced to cancel his lecture for
April 26 and sends sincere apologies to all who planned
to attend.

As an alternative, there will be a social evening with
lots of networking and slides from two committee
members: Tony Westcott will talk about his successful
journey last year along Corsica's GR20 high level
traverse, and Neil Pitts will recount a trip he made in
2006, crossing the Austrian Alps in the footsteps of Frank
