Officers and Committee 

The success of the Association has always depended on the hard working volunteers who serve on its Committee. As with any other voluntary organisation, it is not always easy to find those able to give the commitment of time and energy required, so the RDA has been fortunate in always having had sufficient people willing and able to ensure its effectiveness. Without their contribution, our enjoyment of the river would be significantly diminished.The composition of the current committee is listed below. If you might be interested in joining the committee, please get in touch with the Chair.
