Barry's Blather - This week with London LDWA

NOTICES 

1)  Unfortunately there have been ongoing issues with the LDWA website and one of the victims to this outage was last week's edition of the Blather which when sent disappeared into the ether never to be seen again.   Unfortunately, there is no resent option but I will use some of the photos in this and later editions.    I will take a deep breath and cross my fingers when I press send later. 

2)  We have 2 new members to welcome this week:  A new Primary member Jason Cowlam,  and a new Associate Member Jessica Waring.

3)  LONDON LDWA Impromptu Christmas Social  after Thursday's pop up walk (details below)  there will be a get together for all members at at The Liberty Bounds Wetherspoons near Tower Hill.  Those on the walk plan to be there at 20.00.  Please do try to make the social even if you are unable to make the walk.  It would be lovely to see you.
