Barry's Blather - This week with London LDWA

NOTICES 

General thanks for all those involved in the 25th Anniversary Celebrations this Saturday.  It was wonderful to meet up with so many friends, old and new who we had not seen for such a long time due to the COVID restrictions.   Special thanks to Colin Saunders for pulling it all together and for Gavin Fuller for leading the long walk.  A big shout out to Dorte Newman who stepped up to apply first aid to Ian Watson who took a tumble around the 15-mile mark on the long walk.   Ian made it to the end which in itself was no mean feat.  

Because we have so many photos there will be a special Anniversary Edition later in the week.   But as a taster here is the group photo at the tree
