Obituary for Rene Bent (Wallis)

The death of Rene Bent  at the age of  94 has been reported to us.
She was the husband of Norman who was  a past Chairman of KDRC and they were both long time members during the period spanning the 1970's/2000's.
In later days Rene was a member of the Strollers and it had been her intention to join our 80th celebration in March but was prevented from doing so by a fall.
Our thoughts are with her family at this sad time.

Thursday 4th May 2017 Walk Report.

14 of us set off from the Newton Dovecote Buttery near Geddington on a gloriously sunny morning but with an an unseasonably chilly wind which prersisted through the four miles of the walk.
Our route took us via fields roads and tracks to the edge of Little Oakley ( see picture of church below)
then back to Geddington past Newton Church where an information board records details of the Newton Riots which were a protest against the enclosure of Common Land by the local gentry among other things. These riots resulted in the usual massacre of peasants followed by a few dozen hangings of ringleaders.
So much for the good old days.
We also passed the Dovecote which is one of the few tangible remains of Newton Manor and some of the walkers had a closer look at this.
We then returned to the Buttery where an excellent lunch was enjoyed by all.
Our thanks are due to Robert and Rosemary W who stepped in at short notice to organise and lead a very interesting and informative walk over what to most participants untrod territory so close to home.

Anyone want some gaiters?

 One of our members has a pair of black, nylony, Luckstone gaiters that they cannot use as they are too big and they wonder if someone would like them.  She's  giving them away to anyone who could get use out of them.  She suggests they are a large size which is why they are of no use to her.
If you are interested please contact the Chairman via his usual number.
