Mike Kirby, one of our long-standing members, has let me know that “Sadly Rob O’Nions also known as  onions / Bob /  Unz,  an MS sufferer, passed away Saturday 22nd July after several health problems”.  Rob was a member from 2001 to 2005.

Mike goes on to tell us “Rob and another friend bought probably the first production Tramper MK 1s Chassis numbers 7 and ? having seen its first TV outing on Countryfile I think.
We also led a memorable Disabled Ramble in the Swansea area, and took the first Tramper to the top of Pen-Y-Fan mountain 886m ( seemed higher when in feet ! )
That same summer we led 1/2 doz Trampers to the top (well some broke them through being impatient!)”
If anyone would like to add to Rob’s obituary or would like to get in touch with Mike, please just let me know on rambles@disabledramblers.co.uk
