Choir walking group

No-one injured on choir walk

Nine walkers set out from the refurbished Ramblers' Rest in Chipstead on 21 February and soon reacquainted themselves with Lucy Pevensey and Aslan the Lion, carvings on the local Narnia Trail in Banstead Woods. Dave the Navigator has assured the group that, in light of a casualty on a steep muddy climb on the previous walk, the route would be unerringly level.

Mishap in the mud

Ten choir walkers left the White Lion in Warlingham in inauspicious conditions for the first walk of the New Year on January 27 2020, sodden underfoot and with a threatening forecast. The first mud was encountered while tramping through Blanchman's Farm Nature Reserve onto Bug Hill and then across Woldingham Golf Course.  The group burst into song as it passed under the Oxted Railway line with a rendition of My Lord.

Wet wet wet for solstice walk

A hardy band from the choir walking group endured a sodden start to their winter solstice walk today, 20 December.  Not long after leaving the Wattenden Arms in Kenley, the eight walkers encountered this mini-lake which required them to walk  around it or (in Banner's case) over it.

Mud, mud, inglorious mud

A forecast of persistent drizzle did not discourage twelve walkers from gathering at the Bletchingley Arms on November 29 for a late autumn tramp. The group set off southwards and within a few minutes John Parker fell victim to the muddy path, though suffering only a loss of dignity and a covering of slime.

A surprise at the Surprise

Twelve walkers set off from the Golden Ark, a cosy micropub on Selsdon's high street, on November 4.  We crossed the main road and entered Littleheath Woods, whereupon Roger Lee and his partner Faith called Dave the Navigator to say they had just arrived at the pub.  Techie Dave sent them GPS locations and they caught up with the main party as it entered Bramley Bank.
