I have just received a dispatch from our Walk Leader yesterday, Michael Way. I reproduce it in full below.
"Engineering works did their damnedest but 18 of us took part in the annual Hampstead Group walk with the London Blind Ramblers Club. A six-mile circular from Chorleywood with the usual memorable stop at the church and The Cock pub at Church end near Sarratt Bottom. We were 18 in all.
"We averaged an excellent 2.3 miles per hour and there was only one incident when one of the sighted members of the Blind group, Robbie, missed the train back at Chorleywood while he went outside for a cigarette.
"Thanks to Dave and Valerie Clark of the Blind Ramblers for setting it up, as usual, and a lovely speech of thanks at the end from Lea.
"Next year: Last Sunday in March (unless it's East - we'll check) from Kings Langley - Engineering works do your damnedest.
