Clapham Common to Tooting - Pre-Christmas Sunday Curry Walk

Please remember to change your RSVP if you are no longer attending. 

My telephone number is[masked] if you need to contact me before the start time.

We leave promptly at midday and I will not be able to answer my phone or texts once we start.  We meet just beyond the taxi rank - directions in "how to find us".  If you are a little late follow those instructions, cross the road at the crossing, walk on the path to cross the road to the left, then keep going to cross another road, and you should come to a boating pond (Long Pond) and walk past that, then head towards the right to the bandstand. 

Halfway stop will be in Balham for 30 minutes max.  We may have to split up for the break.  Don't forget that the restaurant is bring your own alchohol.  I have a plan to organise something towards then for those that want to buy some then, but you may prefer to buy at the start (there's a supermarket opposite the waiting point).

=================================

Editing to bring the start time forward by half an hour - we are now setting off at midday, and will be having a half way stop as the route is slightly longer than I originally anticipated.

NB There is no waiting list for this walk - this is deliberate and not an oversight on my part.  I will be asking people who have RSVPd for both walk and meal to re-confirm nearer the time as the no-show rate for walks recently has increased significantly.

Starting at Clapham Common station, we will walk through the common, then on via the back streets of Clapham to Tooting Bec and Tooting Graveney Commons.  From there we will make our way towards Upper Tooting Road - where those who would like to can join me for a curry Sunday Lunch around 2pm (this is a slightly shorter walk).  Tooting Broadway or Tooting Bec station/s will be a walk or short bus ride away. 

 

(meeting at 11.30 am, to be off at 12.00 pm promptly)

Please indicate on your RSVP if you would be interested in the meal as I may need to book in advance.

    Always enjoy Alison's walks and lovely to have beautiful weather and curry instead of usual Xmas dinner. Coffee shop in Balham was a real gem - enjoy your journal Tariq.
