We are very sorry to report that Sylvia passed away on Thursday, August 29th
Sylvia was a stalwart of the Ramblers both nationally and locally. She was Area Secretary and instrumental in setting up the B&P branch being its first Chairperson plus instigated the setting up and running of the Coach Rambles
She joined in 1954 and worked tirelessly for ramblers rights, also being involved with Tom Stevenson in establishing the Pennine Way.
All ramblers, but especially those in East Lancs. have a lot to be grateful for the tireless work that Sylvia put into our footpath network.
