Sad News About Mike Scarre

There is sad news about Mike Scarre who died on the morning of 10 January, 2024. Mike was an old colleague of mine from the Hydro Polymers and BIP days where our club was started and he was a very keen fell walker. He was instrumental in forming and running the Aycliffe Fell Walking Club from the late 1970s, throughout the 1980s and into the 1990s. The picture below goes back to 2005 when he was still enjoying his walking and he was climbing Fairfield in the Lake District on a club walk. My thoughts are with his family.
RIP Mike.

  1. This was very sad news. Like you I knew Mike almost right from the start. I remember Mike’s dedication and the time he put in to get the club off the ground.

    In the early days, Mike used to draw all the walking maps by hand, very similar to Wainwright. He was meticulous, spending his lunchtimes and breaktimes doing this.

    He will be missed.
