Hello once again!

Well the good thing about this time of year is that it's only 23 days left to.. (no - not Christmas but..) the shortest day! So in only three brief weeks, the days will start drawing out and we can look forward once again to the bright, sun-drenched (well drenched in something, anyway) days of summer.

But until then, we've got lots to keep us busy and to help dispel the autumnal gloom.

 

*** Note that this week's walk will be on SUNDAY (not Saturday as shown in "Strider") ***

And first entertainment on our agenda is a curiously-named "hobble" walk being led by Dave on Sunday from Hendon to Golders Green.  This 17-miler will take us along part of the Dollis Brook trail, which is an official long distance path which links the two walkers' M25s - the London Loop (on the outside) and the Capital Ring (on the inside).   If you'd like to join Dave on this walk through what will undoubtedly be a winter wonderland, just make your way to Hendon Central tube for 09.15 on Sunday.

Camel with hobble

This is how you hobble a camel to stop it wandering off
Sunday's walkers will need to be similarly equipped (well perhaps not)

 

So, that's all for this week - enjoy those precious few remaining shopping days before Christmas, but do try and make time to escape from the madding crowds and take a tube that's heading as far away from Oxford Street as possible!
