Jeremy Whitehead 1931-2020

Many members will be saddened to hear that Jeremy Whitehead, an Honorary Member and former Vice-President of the Club, died yesterday at the Glenthorne Care Home in Blackpool, where he had been since the end of last summer after suffering a serious stroke. He was 89 and had been a member for 56 years, leading countless tours for the club. He was an active participant in the "Seniors Tour" in Gargellen last year, and in the summer Langdale meet just twelve months ago. The photo shows him climbing on another Langdale meet in 2009 - when I took the picture his comment was "that's for the obituary is it?"

That is very sad. We had some good trips together, skiing and climbing, and kept much more closely in touch when I lived in the Peak District.

One of the grand old men of British ski-mountaineering!
