It is with much sadness and regret that we have to announce the death of John Boland.
Along with his wife Mona, John, was a member for over 20 years, back in the days when it was known as The Ramblers Association, Nottingham Group, before becoming just The Ramblers.
He was footpath officer from 1995 to 2008 and also stood as treasurer for a couple of years during the same period.
Those who knew him found him a true gentleman - always keen to help and encourage others and also an excellent walks leader. On top of these duties he still found time to help organise the Nottingham Ramblers' hostel weekends.
John was also an active member of the Carlton Male Voice choir.
All at the Nottingham Ramblers send their condolences to Mona and John's family at this most difficult time for them!
