Saturday 17th January

Hampstead Heath Walk


Meet at Gospel Oak Station at 10.30am for a walk of about 6½ miles. The walk will be around the whole of Hampstead Heath and include Highgate Cemetery.

The walk will pass Kenwood House and we may be able to visit, if there’s time. We also go into Highgate Cemetery (East) - that's the free bit but it IS where Karl Marx and Douglas Adams are buried, and see all the bathing ponds. We will get excellent views (weather permitting) over the whole of London from Parliament Hill.

Bring your own lunch, but there may be pub and or tea shop opportunities.

Please note there is some train disruption expected and it may be best to travel between Stratford and Gospel Oak by overground. Be sure to allow enough time for your journey.

Wednesday 21st January

Indian Night


Indian Night is the smart-looking Indian Restaurant next door to Widford Church (A414 London Rd, CM2 8TE, car park entrance from northbound carriageway). They do a midweek special on Wednesdays (starter, main, rice, side dish & coffee for £14.95). So if you fancy joining us for a heart-warming curry, let Andrew know by Wed 14th to book a seat. Table booked for 7.30pm
