Wednesday Meetings, Weekends Away & Other Events
Sunday 2nd September
Sunday Bike Ride: The Lodes Way
The Lodes Way is a cycle path across the fens from Anglesey Abbey to Wicken Fen. The Cambridgeshire Lodes comprise six historic man-made waterways connecting fen edge villages to the River Cam. It’s a 16 mile round trip, but we’ll probably extend the route, returning via Upware and the Five Miles from Anywhere Inn on the banks of the Cam. And there are of course National Trust cafés at each end.
Meet at 10.30am the Natioanl Trust car park at Anglessey Abbey CB25 9EJ.
Wednesday 5th September

Sunday 23rd September
Postponed from July, when it was too windy, John is hosting a taster session of kayaking on the beautiful, quiet creeks of the River Crouch. We use stable, unsinkable, sit on kayaks. You do not need rollover training!
No experience needed - there will be instruction and a safety briefing before we go out. Tea and cakes in the clubhouse afterwards.
£3.00 per person to cover hire of kayak and buoyancy aid – pay on the day. Limited to 10 people – email John W to book.
Meet South Woodham Ferrers Yacht Club, Marsh Farm Road, CM3 5WP at 2pm.
Wednesday 26th September

Come and see some pictures of Jonathan & Cynthia’s spectacular holiday in the Austrian Alps. (And today is Cynthia’s birthday – so there might be some cake too!)
