    Well done Gavin. You did an excellent job organising this event as it was more than just a walk and a very good day out in a lovely part of Kent. Very good company and nice to chat to some old friends and a couple of newbies.

    Nearest station is Tunbridge Wells about 5 miles from Groombridge . I will email my mobile number to you all today ( Saturday ) . I have altered the start time to 10-30am to allow more time for some of you to get there .

    The walk sounds great, I am looking forward to joining you for the first time. Is there a phone no for one of the organisers in case I struggle to get there?

    Hi, I'm looking forward to the walk. Should be a good day, I just looked at the weather forecast - 15/16 degrees and sunshine - can't be bad.

    There is a station in Station Rd but it is the preserved steam railway to Tunbridge Wells, so no good to arrive by.

  • Pauline

    Hi anyone living in or near Molesey want to share car,petrol,parking etc

    March 7, 2014

  • Margaret W

    The road is called Station Road but is there actually a station? If not would anyone driving from SW London be able to give me a lift - i can get to any station that's convenient. Thank you.
