The Harrogate Link January 2010
The Dales Way Association Committee wish all of our members and fellow walkers, the compliments of the Season and good health in 2018.
We wish to thank the Rangers and staff in the National Parks, and the County and Borough Councils for their efforts over the year in improving the Dales Way, and also for their advice, friendship and cooperation.
We also wish to express our appreciation to those folk who have provided food and shelter in various forms for the travellers: usually tired, sometimes sunburnt, maybe cold and wet and at times with the odd blister. You may not always get a thank you email or letter from your guests, but we know that after the walk, their friends are told of a fantastic journey and the wonderful people they have met along the way. You are wonderful ambassadors for the Dales Way.
Then there are the group of people who have transformed the fashion scene at the above establishments. That may not have been in their original business plan. But now walkers enjoy their social evenings after the days walk, looking and feeling “good,” because of the companies that move mini wardrobes of clothes and accessories, that never, ever, would fit in a back pack. We wish you continued success in 2018, and the gratitude of many individuals.
