Good News! Mike ParkerExternal link, the author of Map Addict, On Red Hill and Mapping the Roads, has agreed to become the first ever Patron of the Geograph project. Mike thinks Geograph "is exactly what the internet was invented for." He uses Geograph for book research and for leisure and is fascinated by maps and the land that they show. He hopes to "help Geograph develop further in finding new generations of explorers, photographers, writers and map addicts." Mike lives in Wales and will be at our 2020 AGM in Llandudno.
