    Another great walk, with a lot of thought and planning behind it.
    Really well organised, with plenty of detailed information and updates on length, timing, weather, terrain, halfway catchup points, numbers, etc.
    Thanks Tania

    Notification on change of station was done last minute so I missed the walk. Very disappointed!

    February 8

    • Anni

      The change was announced four days ago.

      Sorry you missed us Teresa. We did in fact walk within a minute of Rotherhithe station when we went to the Thames path. Maybe take a note of my number for next time[masked] and we can find each other.

    I was at Canada Water before 11.10 am but nobody was there. I checked if I could see anybody in any direction... none. As my first walk it doesn't sound a great start!

    February 8

    • Anni

      We were there! Maybe you left by wrong station exit or arrived a tad too late?

      February 8

    • Tania D

      Sorry you missed us Alessandra. Sounds like you may have gotten off the wrong exit. John (one of our members) walked around to find people at other exits just before we left. :-( Maybe take a note of my number for next time[masked] and we can find each other.

    I wonder why the start of the walk was changed from Rotherhithe station to Canada Water. One of the members went to Rotherhithe as originally planned and he just has a waisted journey. These walks don't seem to be very well organised! Not everyone uses the internet, all the time.

    Hi All,
    I'm keeping the meetup as it is at 11am tomorrow from Canada Water tube station. It's meant to be windy, with light rain and the temperature feeling like 4 degrees. If the weather gets bad we'll stop the walk and nip into a nearby pub/cafe. Lets see how it goes! Please do dress appropriately for the weather bringing anoraks/umbrellas. Terrain is paved for this walk with some slopes and steps. Please update your RSVP if you can no longer make it, otherwise see you tomorrow!

    Hi All, Saturday's weather forecast seems to be rainy on all the weather websites. It's seems that the rain and wind is almost a certainty. :-(

    I'll keep this meet up for one more day. Please check again tomorrow as I may need to reschedule this walk.

    Hi All, I've changed the start point from Rotherhithe station to Canada Water tube station as it's easier to get to for most people and it seems there wont be Jubilee line engineering works on Saturday :-) Hope it stays that way! We do start promptly so plan your journey to be on time and have your £1 ready when you get there so we can start the walk on time. Thanks. Looking forward to seeing you.

    Hi Alison, Does your route follow the Thames Path? If so, I think it is much less than 5.5 miles to London Bridge from Rotherhithe Station assuming you are hugging the river. Perhaps you are taking an extended route to the hinterland of Bermondsey?

    1 · February 2

    • Tania D

      Hi Jenny, we do indeed exploring Bermondsey. We will do a little of the river too.

      February 4

    Looking forward to walking and chatting
