Walk Report

Croydon to Woldingham, Saturday 24th February 2018
23 walkers, 18 miles - leader Dave Williams
23 walkers (including 2 laggards!) turned up to help the leader celebrate his 54th birthday.
Suffice to say that no one was left disappointed (well, nearly no one!) as the walk had something to please all tastes including a death-defying descent, spectacular tumbles, plenty of culture (the leader's speciality!) & to top it all a master class in leadership skills!!
Against all the odds everyone survived, the only casualty being one poor soul who tried to negotiate one of the descents on his backside!
And to top it all we reached the finish in daylight having covered just on 18 miles.
The mean average age of the Group was approximately 105!!!
