Sunday 28th July Victoria Park Jazz

Nine Polyamblers met at Stratford, despite the drop in temperature and pessimistic weather forecast, for the stroll across the Olympic Park, past the stadium where Danny was watching athletics the week before, and along the thoughtfully renamed Greenway (formerly the Northern Outfall Sewer Cycleway!) to Victoria Park, met by a flock of mini-cyclists wearing yellow high-vis jackets and then through the Old English Garden, past the East Lake and the massive Burdett-Coutts Drinking Fountain to the grassy expanse of the East Park.

Saturday 11th March. Annual General Meeting

The AGM is a nice occasion to meet with friends and celebrate another year of walking.  Approximately 30 Polyramblers attended on a beautiful spring day.  In her opening remarks, the President was pleased to note that she did not have to report any death of club members since the last AGM; quite a relief to everybody.  The minutes of the last AGM, the annual report and the accounts were approved.  The annual report mentions that members had the opportunity to walk over Continue reading Saturday 11th March.
