Roll up, roll up, walk leaders! There are still plenty of midweek evening dates in the Autumn/Winter calendar waiting to be filled so if you have a special short-ish walk you'd like to share, drop Marie a text on 07787 532793 or email her at mheracleous@yahoo.co.uk

And now for this week's tempting offerings. On Thursday you can experience the highs of Greenwich Park in all its evening glory, with the tempting option afterwards of a visit to the Gate Clock, Greenwich's very own Spoons.Saturday features a visit to the Chilterns and Bedford countryside which packs in all sorts of sights and points of interest from Berkhamsted Castle to the Bridgewater Monument. Not to be missed!

 

Future event

Walk in memory of Don Bolton and Sylvia Nagarkar

Saturday or Sunday 22nd/23rd  September

 

Many London Group members will have known of Don Bolton and Sylvia Nagarkar. Both were founder members of the group and both were at the heart of the group over the years. Both passed away last year. Don lived in Guildford and he delighted in the area. Sylvia, too, had a long association with it, so it is appropriate that the walk is centred on the Guildford/Peaslake area. I am suggesting a distance of about 15 miles - although that can be extended if need be. A shorter distance will also be provided for those short of walking. It will be a relaxed walk with a stop in a quiet location where we can join together to share personal memories of Don or Sylvia. There will be a longer pub stop for lunch. Family members are keen to be involved and are pleased that we will have the event. Offers to lead would be welcome as would any ideas you may have. If you are in touch with anyone who is no longer connected with the group who knew Don and Sylvia please let them know.
