Double the fun this weekend - your next two walks with London LDWA

What a treat - this coming weekend features not one but two walks. On Saturday Ron promises 'The whole spectrum of London life as we cross the capital' - 24 miles of the Great Wen starting in Penge and finishing at Ally Pally. Then on Sunday there's the chance to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Wandle Trail walk. The details are slightly changed from those advertised in Strider, with Ian taking over from Colin as leader and what might be called a bonus mile. Scroll down to find out more.
