While the weather is still cold I would like to take the opportunity to talk about the Strand in 'peace and quiet' so we shall meet in Gracechurch Street for you to see the old maps of the Strand.

Paddington
Tuesday 7 March

We meet at Paddington Station. On entering the station, walk towards the area behind the main concourse (which is mainly eateries and coffee shops). You will find a lift and an escalator which will take you to the upper level – with more cafes, including an Eat Cafe and a pub called the Mad Bishop and Bear (don’t ask why). We are having coffee on that level.

Clapham
Tuesday 11 April

We meet at Cafe Nero, Clapham High Street. If you arrive at Clapham Common Underground Station, you need to be on the Clapham Common side of the road. Look for Waitrose, then Iceland. Walk past the pub called 'Stane Street Syndicate' and continue until you come to the Cafe Nero (Note: It has a ground floor & basement).


The Coffee Morning will take place.   


Wandsworth
Tuesday 9 May

We meet at Pret a Manger at Wandsworth. Its on the corner of Wandsworth High Street and Garratt Lane. Its part of the shopping centre but its entrance is from the pavement. Not having an underground station nearby, one of the easiest ways to get there is a train to Clapham Junction Station and a short bus ride to Wandsworth Town Hall, then less than a minute's walk from the bus stop.

Unfortunately the number of members able to attend is very few. The Coffee Morning is cancelled for this month but the SAME location will be posted for June and it is hoped it will take place.   

 

Wandsworth
Tuesday 6 June

We shall meet at the venue for the Coffee Morning that was not completed in May (SEE ABOVE).


The walk will go ahead but we are 'thin on the ground'. Please make sure you come to support us.   


Hammersmith
Tuesday 11 July

We shall meet at the Costa in the shopping precinct beside Hammersmith underground station. There are two underground exits, which both lead into the shopping precinct. On leaving one exit, you will see Tesco to your left and Costa to your right. If you cannot see these shops then turn left from the other exit and walk until you reach the first exit.


The Coffee Morning will go ahead. Please make every effort to attend because there will only be four at this event.
