AGM and Mystery Walk

Last Saturday saw two dozen Ramblers convening in Kentish Town for our 27th Annual General Meeting...

Coffee and croissants fuelled some lively debate...

and the meeting was followed by a Mystery Walk through Kentish Town, Hampstead Heath, Highgate, Highgate Wood and then Alexandra Palace.

The walk finished at Turnpike Lane as the light was failing fast.

Many Thanks from all of us to Maija and Margaret for organising the food and drink and to Jane for leading the walk.

Magical Mystery Tour......

All Hampstead Group members are reminded that our group Annual General Meeting is this Saturday.

Coffee and croissants will be served beforehand. Then after the AGM business, we will embark on a mystery walk. This will be average paced, less than ten miles, and will have a lunch stop where food can be bought.

The AGM will be held on Saturday, 20th November, at 11 a.m.

Venue: St. Patrick's Primary School, Holmes Road, Kentish Town, NW5 3AH

Hope you can make it....

Gravesend Circular

I take pleasure in passing on this report from Michael Way, who co-led this walk with Olga Way last Sunday.

"Ten of us including members from Finchley, Amersham and Richmond,braved a
quite ghastly day for the 7 - 1/2 Thames-side walk from Gravesend on Sunday Nov 14.

"It started drizzly, brightened a little at lunchtime, then poured down all
afternoon . Everyone seemed to enjoy it, even the lady in shoes.

"Picture 1 shows some of us at Gravesend Pier, the oldest wrought-iron pier
in the world;

"Pictures 2 and 3 are at the 19th century fort on the Thames built
(successfully) to keep Napoleon out....

"and Picture 4, some graceful scenes as
we clamber over a fallen tree completely blocking the path...

"I have reported it it (with this picture) to Kent County Council.

"There are by the way lots of trains to Gravesend and back on Sundays.

"Michael and Olga Way".

Many Thanks Michael

Christ's Hospital to Pulborough

Jane Rosoux writes...
"I attach photographs taken on Sunday's 12-mile walk along the West Sussex Literary Trail from Christ's Hospital to Pulborough led by Gill Henderson.

"The weather was good and our party of 10 enjoyed attractive scenery and good autumn colours, particularly after our lunch stop, which was at the Blue Idol, Coolham, a Quaker Meeting House established by William Penn."

Borough Green to Tonbridge

Jane Rosoux writes...

"I attach photographs taken on Saturday's 14-mile walk along the Wealdway from Borough green to Tonbridge from which you can make a selection for the Rambling On blog.

" Larger versions of the better photographs have been uploaded to the Web Album, which can be found at http://picasaweb.google.com/104912253965949195193/

"Four of us enjoyed autumn sunshine and colours on a varied walk with a lunch stop at the attractive village of West Peckham.

Many Thanks as always to Jane for the report and the excellent pictures.
