This year’s Kendal Mountain Festival was another roaring success! This year, in a departure from the previous years of closed private, VIP only, opening ceremonies, the kick off was a grand public opening on Kendal’s main street, Stricklandgate.
The highlights of my presenting duties this year were:
- Introducing Tim Emmett at the Town Hall on Saturday morning. Tim has a reputation for being a bit of a live-wire and up for just about any adventure. So the talk was typically entertaining!
- Presenting, and of course watching, the winning film in the Climbing category – Wide Boyz.
- Meeting Karen Darke and getting to see – and hold – a London 2012 Paralympic medal.
