Mike Stythe – Honorary Member

In appreciation of his active and enthusiastic membership of the Society over the years Mike Stythe has been made an Honorary Member.

A former Lieutenant Colonel in the Army and for many years an Outward Bound instructor in North Wales, one of Mike’s specialities has been organising walks for us in his beloved Snowdonia. Most recently his idea of climbing Snowdon by train and walking down resulted in the Society’s trip to North Wales in May 2012.

That inspired idea was typical of Mike. He had already made 106 previous ascents, but he was determined to climb Snowdon one more time despite health issues. He found a solution, and it was one that suited many others in the Society too!


Update – Mike has since moved to a care home in Suffolk. Please ask Ann Lawrence if you’d like to contact him – 01494 727207 or membership@chilternwelsh.co.uk
