Dear all

In case you were worried about being at a loose end this week, then worry no longer as LDWA London can well and truly fill the gaps for you.

We've got three events coming up this week.   If you'd like to learn more, then read on...

 

First we've got our much-trailed AGM, tomorrow (Tuesday 24 Feb) at which all members are welcome.   It will be held in the upstairs room at 18:30 in the Queens Larder pub, 1 Queen Square Holborn, WC1N 3AR. Please let Douglas Robinson know if you plan to attend, and also if you'd like to join us for a pizza afterwards.   You can get all the details by clicking here

 

Second is an after-work riverside hike this Thursday (26 Feb).   If you you fancy finishing off your Thursday with a bit of a leg-stretch and the now-obligatory Wetherspoons curry afterwards, then join Jerome at Kingston station at 18:00.   All the details are below

 

And there's more..

Thirdly, on Saturday, Dave is leading an expedition into the Surrey wilderness (yes I know that's stretching the imagination a bit) from Dormans to Oxted on Saturday (28 Feb).   If, like me, you've never been to Dormans or if you just like the idea of exploring both the Eastern and Western hemispheres, then you might like to check it out.   And judging from past form, I imagine Dave will manage to locate a Wetherspoons somewhere on this walk, too - even in the wilderness...

All the details of Dave's walk are below, but please note some of the travel details have changed compared to Strider because of the ongoing railworks at London Bridge.   The details below, and on the website, are correct as of today.
