Dear Friends, just to say thank you very much for the guided tour last Sunday, 12 August. Some of the leaders last came in 2003 and we all agreed it is all so much improved since then - the powerpoint presentation made all the difference, thank you. I hope we may have enthused some of the Guides to volunteer or travel in the future. It is always a pleasure to visit Our Chalet in summer or winter. Best wishes to you all, hope to be back another year.
