Letters to the editor

Robbed

In 2014, the most significant event, in Marilyn-bagging terms, happened. The list was completed. Well done, Rob and Eddie. And where better to celebrate this than in our own Marilyn Hall of Fame News? So, as I am sure many of you were, I was looking forward to receiving my copy of the special, celebratory edition. Imagine, then, my disappointment when it arrived. No headline news, no front-page splash, no centre page spread. Instead, we got an oblique reference to 'some rocks in the Atlantic'.

However, this concerns us all. Firstly, and probably most importantly, is this how we want to portray ourselves and hill bagging in general, to the wider world? I hope not. And secondly, it robbed us of the opportunity to celebrate and mark this fantastic and historic achievement.
