EXPLORING RIDGEWAY WALK 7.2 MILES Headline
Sat 15 Aug 2020 at: 10.00 am - 5.30pm
London Marylebone to Wendover station over the Chilterns to Princes Risborough HP22 6BN (Click for Map)

Meet in London Marylebone Stn outside ticketing area 10.00 am to take the 10.27 train towards Aylesbury.  However, buy return ticket to Princes Risborough, although initially we are going to Wendover, due to arrive 11.15. Walk starts from Wendover station car park 11.20 am. Conflicting weather forecasts, though Met Office says mostly fine, please pack sunscreen, sunhat sunglasses, cool clothing but also fleece/jumper, long pants option, waterproofs, as well as face covering for travel. 


Not sure we’ll find a pub serving food/drink so please pack your own. At least a couple of pints or litre and half, plus a picnic lunch. In accord with Govt guidelines we may have to, if more than 6, form another group to trail behind the front one.  I'm hoping to find a pub in the last third of the walk open again but no guarantee of entry. 

Interesting walk with some steep ascents, walking The Ridgeway along Pulpit Hill, over White Leaf Hill Cross.  Some steep hilly ascents/descents and woodlands, although great vistas at the top.
Return journeys 25, 30 & on thehour from Princes Risborough, where we catch the replacement coach service to High Wycombe.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE WALK MUST TAKE PLACE IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE GOVERNMENT ANTI-COVID REGULATIONS AND ADVICE IN FORCE ON THE DAY. ANY MEMBER WHO FALLS INTO A VULNERABLE CATEGORY BECAUSE OF HEALTH CONDITIONS OR AGE SHOULD CONSIDER THE RISKS. 

 
MEETING:     London Marylebone10.00 am or Wendover Station 11.15, 11.20 start.
COST:     Bring own drink and/or food and for travel.

We normally held two Wednesday pub evenings a month but due to the Covid19 lockdown, these events are now being held on the Zoom website.

Why not come and join us? - we seem to have even more laughter than in the pub.

BECKENHAM/BROMLEY MYN ZOOM PUB EVENING Headline
Wed 2 Sep 2020 at: 20:00 - 23.00
Zoom

We normally held two Wednesday pub evenings a month but due to the Covid19 lockdown, these events are now being held on the Zoom website. As our members are not being allowed to actually meet their friends, we are now finding that everyone is happy for these events to carry on as a weekly pub  event. Why not come and join us? - we seem to have even more laughter than in the pub.

Contact Roland in advance, preferably by e-mail, so that he can send you a link to click on at the start of the meeting.
