Val Warlow        

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Val Warlow. Val was a lady in the true sense of the word. As one of the charity's founders Val was considered the 'mother of Valeways', nurturing it through its infancy and helping to develop it into the valued organisation it has now become.

Val was a devoted volunteer from the beginning, taking on the role of Trustee, often as chairman on several occasions, and was an active Walk Leader right up to the present day. Her passion for walking carved the way for the Vale's first Walking for Health scheme which continued to run for many years and continues today in the form of our Coffee Shop Strollers, the first of which in Cold Knap, Barry was started by Val. She was always ready to fight for the survival of Valeways and firmly believed that the public footpaths of the Vale should be accessible for all to enjoy.

Hundreds of people have joined us on our walks, many of which would have been led by Val herself. We send our heartfelt condolences to Val's family. She will be sorely missed by us all.
