The TBR Committee

The group is run by a committee consisting of volunteers that are elected at the AGM (normally held in October each year). The current committee members are shown below alongside their role and an outline of what their role entails. Each role also explains the reasons that you may wish to contact that committee member, and provides an email address for the role.  You should also contact the committee if you have a problem or suggestion for improvement. Not all committee members check their email on a daily basis so, if you do not get an acknowledgement of the email within a couple of days, try contacting another committee member and asking them to prod the original member.

clivebClive has been a long standing member of TBR – some say for too long! He's always avoided high office in the past, but in the pub after a walk, he finally succumbed to pressure from the previous two Chairs and agreed to undertake the role. He leads walks but has a bit of a reputation for occasionally underestimating the mileage! Undeserved according to him - we'll let you decide.

emmaAfter a couple of years of membership Emma was feeling guilty for not leading any walks but decided it was safer for everyone if she volunteered to be Treasurer, as she was less likely to lose TBR money than TBR members. Top of her Christmas list is for someone to invent glasses that enable you to see where you are going in the rain when half way across the Beacons.
