    Hi Folks
    A shame to lose your invaluable and informative service and comments, but quite undestandable given the circumstances. This winter will be a fairly distant memory I fear by the time the current crisis is over but I would settle for repeat conditions next winter – fingers crossed. Stay safe out there. Roger

    Ladies and gents,

    Thank you for your superb, enlightening and informative efforts over this winter season. As a mountain rescuer, hillgoer and emergency services member I’ve made full use of your services and enjoyed following the seasonal story even on days when there as no chance of me ever being near a hill. It’s a melancholy end to this season and I fear the storm is yet to break. Take care of yourselves and I trust that by the time I study your reports again we all find ourselves in a much healthier place.

    All the very best,

    Alan Pettigrew.
