They may be in their 70s but Robyn Thorogood and Peter Mason are still scaling new heights!
On Saturday 18th February, these two septuagenarians, together with Robyn's son Joel, reached the summit of Mount Kenya — the highest mountain in Kenya at 4,985m and the second-highest in Africa, after Kilimanjaro.
We understand that Robyn has been training extensively for this challenge through his membership of the recently opened gym in Haddenham, as well as undertaking extensive hikes in the foothills of the Chilterns!
When he's not off on his travels, Robyn is the volunteer manager of Snakemoor, our local nature reserve located on the Thame side of the railway station.
Fellow Haddenham resident Peter Mason is another active chap who firmly rejects the pipe and slippers routine! Recently turned 70, Peter is an experienced long distance walker and very active member of the local U3A.
Joel is Robyn's son who grew up in the village and maintains many friends here.
Congratulations to this intrepid trio.
