Saturday 16th January

London Rags to Riches walk


Meet at Mile End underground station at 10:30am for a 3 mile walk taking in the diversity of the East End from Spitalfields to Whitechapel: "One of the most fascinating, dynamic and visually arresting urban areas in the world".

Followed by a curry at Inito in Shoreditch and in the evening to Kings Cross to see the Lumiere light festival.

Note this is a SATURDAY!

Wednesday 20th January

Live Dosa Meal


It’s excusably close to Mike’s birthday, but we don’t need much of a reason for a meal out. The Live Dosa is a restaurant up the theatre end of Duke Street, Chelmsford. It specialises in the southern Indian cooking of Kerala and has had very good reviews, so well worth a try.

Let Mike know by 13th Jan if you want to come, so we can be sure of getting a table booked. We'll be eating at 7.30pm.

Rushen Castle, Isle of Man

Wednesday 27th January

Isle of Man Slide Show

Dave P

The Isle of Man is roughly the same size as the Isle of Wight, but much less densely populated. It has spectacular cliff scenery, some moderately mountainous hills and a brilliant array of trains and trams to get around on. It could be the perfect walkers destination! Join us for a tour of just what you can fit into a week.

Jordans hostel

 Friday 29th to Sunday 31st January 2016

Jordans Hostel, Buckinghamshire


YHA Jordans is a rural retreat in a tranquil village near Beaconsfield in Buckinghamshire.  We have exclusive use of the hostel this weekend, and plan to use it as a base to walk a section of the Thames Path.
