Go to Keats House (followed by a picnic)

One of our members suggested we should have a summer picnic. This sounds like fun and I thought I would tag the picnic onto a visit to Keat's House (nearly a Victorian) followed by a picnic on Hampstead Heath. Feel free to skip the house and join us for a picnic.
This link gives location, travel and admission price details http://www.cityoflondon.gov.uk/things-to-do/attractions-around-london/keats-house/Pages/Visit-us.aspx I will go to Hampstead Tube and meet those travelling this way at 1.00pm. You may prefer to travel to Hampstead Heath which is on the overground, take a bus or even drive - in which case I will meet you outside the house at 1.30pm. I will check out a good spot on the heath for a picnic. If you only want to have a picnic, meet us outside Keats House at 2.30pm.
Bring a little food and drink (alcoholic or soft) to share. What did Victorians take on their picnics? I will also bring a table cloth, paper plates, plastic cups and cutlery. You may also want something to sit on.
If it is raining, we will find a cafe or pub.
Hope these arrangements aren't too complicated - feel free to contact me for clarification. If you RSVP, I will contact you nearer the time for details of when/where you will meet me.

    Hi Tracey
    I will join you after all for the Keats House trip. Will get to Hampstead tube for 1pm. I will keep an open mind about the picnic since the forecast is grim. Can buy a ssandwich if it is OK or join you all in a cafe sheltering from the storm.

    I was looking forward to this meetup but this Saturday is also the only day I can go up to Sheffield for a family reunion.
    alas! I'm sure those going will enjoy.

    Hi Tracey, I'm really looking forward to taking part in some of your events and would have loved to do the one this Saturday. Unfortunately I'll be spending the weekend with my daughter so can't. Hopefully next time!!

      If you go again, my cousin has a B&B by the airport/beach (the plane can only land there when the tide's out) :-)
      I'll be in Mull.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
