Midsummer delights

Six walkers left The Fox pub on Coulsdon Common on June 28 to retrace a walk last done on a crisp mid-winter's day in  December 2018. This time it was glorious mid-summer with shorts and sunhats the preferred attire.

Of blossoms and crumble

Dick Jones writes: Despite South-West Trains’ attempt to delay our arrival at the Black Horse, Norbiton, on April 25, 13 walkers departed only 13 minutes behind schedule after allowing the latecomers to finish their food and drink.

Two bracing March walks

The walkers made two outings in March.  The base for the first, on March 7, was the Fleeting Brook in Caterham, with eight walkers taking part.

Walk heroes smash distance record in tribute to pioneers

Seven choir walkers set a new distance record on Monday February 14 in an outing that commemorated the first choir walk ten years ago.  Covering much of the same ground as the 2012 pioneers, they clocked up a total of 12.88 kms, or just over eight miles – consigning to history the previous record of 7.28 miles set on a Merstham-based walk in April 2017.

Northerly delights 

A select group of six had a delightful outing on January 31, savouring the clear skies and stiff northerlies  of a glorious winter day.

Solstice and New Year outings

The walkers made two outings either side of Christmas and the New Year.

The first, on December 20, was the traditional winter solstice walk, which also commemorated the sad accident to befall walking veteran Martin “Polly” Perkins, who fractured his ankle during a walk on December 21, 2015.
