By popular acclaim, the winner of the caption competition was Barry.   So - Barry - you know who you are - that luscious Wetherspoons curry fantasy is all yours.   I'll drop you an email about how to reclaim your winnings.

Here's a reminder of the problematic picture that was in need of a caption:

And here's the prizewinning caption!
'Heritage vehicle for sale. Definitely in need of a PICK me UP!!!' - by Barry


So - now let's turn to the weekly walk.

Richmond Park
A handy primer!


This week, it's Dave's turn to lead us out into the wilds of West London in a foray through some of our finest parks on Sunday.   If you'd like to join this exploration of the Parks Osterley, Syon, Richmond and Bushy (sounds a bit like a 70's Glam Rock band doesn't it), then just meet up with Dave at Osterley tube at 09.30 on Sunday morning.   All the details are below.


Well - that's all for now.   Have a great week rocking into December - only just over 3 weeks till the shortest day now.   Yippee!
