SPIRIT OF KINDER 2017........
             
The event is at Edale Village Hall, at 2pm on Saturday, 22nd April, 2017 - plus guided walks throughout the weekend led by the National Trust

This year marks the 85th anniversary of the Mass Trespass and the 35th anniversary of anniversary of the acquisition of the Kinder Scout by the National Trust (see trail). The theme of the conference will be the work being done buy the National Trust and others in the re-wetting and re-wilding of Kinder Scout. The legendary Rony Robinson (of Radio Sheffield) will be MC and Sally Goldsmith will perform a play based on GHB Ward.
The speakers are:
Dame Helen Ghosh (Director General of the National Trust), Venessa Griffiths (new Chief Executive of The Ramblers), Stephen Trotter (Director of the Wildlife Trusts, England) and Jon Stewart (General Manager of the National Trust in the Peak District) 

It is also hoped that the launch of a book 'Clarion Call', which consists of some wonderful old photos of Clarion Ramblers' members, and items on the early development of walking in our area, will be launched at this event. There are other events which are taking place earlier - on April 8th see the link below.
