Summer Programme of Outings and Social Events - 2016
(Updated 5 June 2016)
Saturday 18th June
Visit to Downe Bank - Organised By Derek Miah
Meet at 10am in the village of Downe, in the London Borough of Bromley at a wooden roundabout opposite the Queens Head pub and Downe church (which dates back to 1291).
There is no official parking in Downe. But on my visits there, Luxted road which is a long road, seems a good place to park. Alternatively, the 146 bus leaves Bromley South station at 9.36 am for Downe church.
We will have to walk to Downe Bank (about 15-20mins), where we will enter a field to take our photographs. It would be a good idea to take a tripod or a monopod. If you want to get down lower then a plastic sheet or a kneeling pad would be useful. A bottle of water would be advisable, so as not to become dehydrated.
The intention is to be there around about an hour before heading back to Downe, where I suggest we have lunch in the Queens Head. Of course you can bring a packed lunch and eat it outside.
Sunday 3rd July
Run or Dye - Organised by Mike Spurway
Run or Dye is the world's most colourful fun run, where the runners are pelted with colour, similar to the action in the Holi festival in India. The event starts at 10.00am and I believe there is a car park charge of £10,
If you wish to go, please contact me for further information and travel arrangements or better still enter as a runner.
