London Group 4
This London Group is led by Anne Jones. Meetings are indoors or out in London, on the first Wednesday
In June we decided not to go to London but to watch the fly past on the end of the pier of the WW2 planes. The route had been changed so we walked along the sea front to Chalkwell & had lunch in The Beach Hut to then discover that the time had changed to later in the day so we walked back along the cliffs, stopping for ice cream at Rossis.
I was still in Southend at the time of the fly past, near Pier Hill, so went to watch them in the distance. Everywhere was crowded with people waiting. We all had a lovely walk along the sea front & cliffs.
For our July walk we walked from Fenchurch St Station to Tower Hill where we caught a City Cruises boat to Greenwich, with a commentary on the way. We had lunch in Greenwich Market & spent some time looking round & of course, retail therapy. We decided as we had already been to Greenwich a few times, & didn't have a lot of time, we would walk back through Greenwich Tunnel & catch the D.L.R to Bank station. We walked up Fenchurch Street to No 120 to see a roof garden that has not long been open.
No booking required but as open to the elements, only really suitable for a fine day. Good views of London , gardens & a water feature. The entrance hall has a beautiful flowered ceiling. Worth a visit.
August is usually a planning meeting.
