Choir walking group

A walk in the rain

Eight walkers left the Sir Julian Huxley in Selsdon on Monday November 28 and walked along the undulating Old Farleigh Road to Selsdon Nature Reserve.

Walkers beat the clock

Fourteen walkers embarked on their journey from the Red Lion in Bletchingley on October 31 at the unwonted hour of 1pm – which followed the reversion of clocks to GMT the previous Saturday night. Calculations indicated we needed to be back at the said Red Lion by 4.30pm in order to avoid benightment, and a brisk pace was set as the group, who included four women, headed south through woods and then across farmland, following the line of the Greensand Way.

The steepest day

Ten walkers gathered in glorious autumn sunshine at the Old Bell in Oxted on October 10 and set off northwards towards the imposing escarpment of the North Downs.

Rendezvous in Bogey Lane

On September 5, a group of 14 assembled at the Greyhound in Keston, the venue used by the choir committee for its meetings.

Off and walking at Epsom

Tweve walkers gathered outside the Beefeater at Tattenham Corner overlooking Epsom race course in sunny weather on August 15 but thankfully cooler temperatures. Early arrivals were dismayed when the barkeep announced there was no beer.  This was rectified when his manager realised the potential lost business and some was magically produced.

Walk graced by record-setting women

Twelve walkers gathered at the Skimmington Castle on Reigate Heath on July 25.  They included four women – a record proportion – of whom Hilary Smith, widow of choir stalwart Peter, was making her walk-group debut.
