London Meetings, Saturday November 7, 2015

This month we have:

  1. AGM : The clubs AGM starts at 1:00pm (card carrying members only), then at 2.30 the meeting begins

Speaking this month we have:

  1. Ashley Butterfield – Tales of a bogieman: Round India on a railway carriage (100 times) The pleasures and perils of taking assorted foreign tourists round India by rail, before the advent of the internet /mobile phone / Tripadvisor etc.
  2. Andrew Lyndon-Skeggs – 1,300 km walk from Auch to Dieppe.

    Businessman, photographer, resident of a 38.5 meter barge in Paris, gardener, lecturer on the Jazz Age in France, alumni of Magdalene College Cambridge, one time conjuror and Master of the Cambridge University Drag Hunt, plus early internet entrepreneur, Andrew Lyndon-Skeggs has now also walked across France.

    The idea for the walk came out of the blue and, having never done a long walk before, Andrew Lyndon-Skeggs decided to walk right across France. Two criteria only; boundary to boundary, and avoid the Chemin de St Jacques de Compostello. Oh, and, South to North. Why not? At least it avoids looking into the sun all day. The talk will include personal reminiscences, photographs and (if you want to take it) practical advice. Much looking forward to meeting you all.

London branch meetings are held at The Church of Scotland, Crown Court, behind the Fortune Theatre in Covent Garden the first Saturday of each month, unless there is a UK public holiday that weekend.

Admission costs, £3 for Members and £6.00 Non-members. You do not need to be a member to attend, and we do not sell advanced tickets, please just come on the day, the doors open at 2:15pm and the program starts around 2:30pm with each talk lasting approximately 40 minutes.

There is no London meeting in August, but we start afresh each September.
