| NEW NAME FOR SURG
The Area Council has approved a change of name for SURG, the Surrey Under-40s Ramblers Group. The group is now called "Surrey Young Walkers". As well as being shorter, the new name aligns with the group web address and will make it easier to promote the group online.

Walk leaders are strongly encouraged to read the agreement before plannng a walk on these lands, particularly if the intention is to meet at a military car park. It is suggested that walk leaders carry a copy with them on the walk. Both the agreement and a link to the byelaws are in the members' area under "Other Documents".
