Hello everyone

 

Now that the summer is well and truly with us, our walks programme is getting into fiull swing.   So this week we've got two particularly tasty offerings to tempt you out into the countryside.

 

First, on Wednesday, Peter is leading a 7-miler round Wanstead Flats.   So if you would like to find out whether the flats are a geographic feature or the answer to a 1960s housing crisis, then this could be right up your street.   Meet at Forest Gate station at 6:30 pm if you'd like to join this voyage of discovery.

 

Second, on Saturday, Paul is heading into the wilds of Ashdown forest for a 24 mile one-way hike from Uckfield to Ashurst.   This walk offers the prospect of discovering a "lost" village, which sounds absolutely fascinating.   So if you'd like to join this slightly longer leg-stretch, be at Uckfield station at 9.22 on Saturday morning.

 

All the details of the walks, as ever, are at the bottom of this email.

 

And while I have your attention....;Kitchener calling LDWA

Yes - please don't forget that the 19th Founders' challenge, organised by LDWA London, is on Saturday 3 October, and we need as many volunteers as we can to help running checkpoints, and a whole variety of other important tasks on the day.

If you'd like to get involved, please email Gordon Parker, at founderschallenge@ldwa.org.uk 

Thank you in advance!

 

So on that note, I'll sign off, and wish you a great week!

Cheers

Adam
