Over the course of many years, a lot of people have contributed to Dove Stone to make it what it is today and also helped me in my role as Area Ranger. I have been extremely fortunate to have known such people and would like to express my thanks to you all. If I have missed your name then I am sorry, it’s not I haven’t appreciated you it’s more to do with reaching the age of 73. Please contact me and I will ensure you go on the list if you wish.
