Slideshows and spring sojourns with London LDWA!

Hello everyone

Yes it’s that time of the week again and I can bring you lots of spine-tingling excitement from London LDWA.

Now that we're into the spring and summer season, we're running two events a week, most weeks until the end of September.  So there can be absolutely no excuse for anyone not dusting off their boots and hitting the hills.

So this week, the two events we’ve got in store are:

 

First:

Douglas is leading a riverside walk from Mortlake to Richmond, setting out from Mortlake station at 6:30pm on Wednesday.   Now that the rain is safely out of the way(!), this promises to be a fine excursion

Second:

Hot on Douglas’ heels, on Sunday Adam (i.e. me) will be leading a three-valley exploration in metroland, checking out the Chess, Misbourne and Colne rivers.   Be at Rickmansworth station at 9:34 am if you’d like to join the fun.

But please note that in a calamitous turn of events, the pub chef where we are having lunch has broken her leg so only sandwiches will be available if you’re taking the pub option.   Please think about what you’d like and let me know when we set off what you’d like, then I can phone an order through.

All the details of both walks are, as usual, at the bottom of this note.

 

And there’s more!

We’ve run a few social evenings over the last few months where various illustrious speakers have given talks about recent hiking trips and other interesting hiking-related matters.   If the promise of a night in a pub and a slide show wasn’t enough to tempt you to any of these events, we’ve put all the slides that have been used on the website for you to peruse from the comfort of your armchair.  

You can view them by clicking here (you can click on the little arrows at the top of the pictures to move from one to the next or run a slideshow, or just use the left and right arrow keys on your keyboard to skim through them quickly)

Happy viewing!

 

Hopefully see a good number of you on Sunday

All the best

Adam

The chef at the pub in Chalfont St Giles has broken her leg so only sandwiches will be available if you take the pub lunch option.   The usual selection are available (only white bread I'm afraid and only cold fillings including egg mayo, tuna, ham, cheese, bacon, sausage) so please think about what you'd like and let me know on the morning of the walk.   I will phone our order through before we arrive, to speed up the process.
