David Beaton

He has led many walks over the years and the instigator of the very successful millennium walks now known as the End-to-End walks.

He has not only walked the Heysen Trail south to north but also north to south (a devil for punishment).

He is a Maintenance Section Leader and without these people walks wouldn’t take place.

He is also the Membership Officer which is a time consuming job, not the least because of the increasing membership of the Friends as a result of the very successful End-to-End walks.

Nominated by Chris Porter
