K Fellfarers - the outdoor club for people in south Cumbria
Gallery 2010 - December
|The commemorative book to mark 2009 as the 75th anniversary of the Club and its use of High House bunkhouse was finally launched at a special event at Kendal Golf Club on Friday December 10th. Special guests included Bill Birkett and Jonathan Somervell, who both wrote Forewards for the book, and Tony Greenbank, the climber and journalist, who contributed a chapter on his memories of High House.
Right shows our President Gordon Pitt welcoming everyone to the launch.
Below left shows the books editor Mick Fox talking about some of the interesting things discovered during research for the book, and below right some of the people present.

|By Christmas Eve, there was no sign of a break in the cold weather. The Kent estuary at Sandside was increasingly resembling an arctic sea-scape with (very) mini ice-bergs. Rogers photo captures the idea.|
