River and sea - this week with London LDWA

The Premier League may be over for this season but London Group's midweek evening programme is kicking off on Thursday when Peter leads a riverside walk from Richmond to Putney. Then on Saturday Rod is offering the chance to get out of town (and avoid those Cup Final crowds) with a linear walk from Folkestone to Dover. All the details below.

 

REMINDER TO WALK LEADERS. Let Marie know this week if you would like to lead any walks for the autumn/winter schedule

All good things must come to an end as must Pete Colley's three year term as Treasurer of London Group. To ensure a smooth handover, we are looking to co-opt someone onto the committee in September. That someone could be you!

You don't need to be an accountant, just able to manage an electronic bank account and a simple spreadsheet or two. If you are interested, please contact Pete at london.treasurer@ldwa.org.uk.
