Greenwich Walk

Diana has asked me to remind you that this walk will be held on Saturday 17 July.

We meet the guide at Tower Hill Underground Station at 11am, main exit (street level) We move down to Tower pier and a boat trip to Greenwich. At Greenwich there will be a conducted walk around the town.

After which we can please ourselves maybe have lunch in a pub or a picnic lunch. Walk round the market, visit the Cutty Sark, go to the Observatory - whatever takes your fancy.

The cost of the tour is 5.50 per person and 3 for the boat trip. If you are interested PLEASE CONTACT Diana Carpenter ( or 020 8393 8029) to let her know how many will be going in your party.

I've done this 'London Walk' and I can thoroughly recommend it, it's fascinating, as are most of these walks. The guides are real characters and their knowledge is second to none.

In addition to the historic aspects of Greenwich it also has a good market, many restaurants & bistros and a number of 'real' pubs (i.e. the way pubs used to be).

Water-Joke (Think about it!)

A man is walking his dog by the river. All of a sudden the bank gives way and they both fall in the drink. While there struggling a German jogger comes by. He sees their predicament, jumps in and drags the man out. The rescued man is grateful but tells the jogger that his dog can’t swim. The jogger jumps back in the river and rescues the dog. Once on the riverbank the dog is lifeless and limp so the German gives the dog the kiss of life and revives him. The dog’s owner is amazed and asks the jogger if he’s a vet. “Vet” replies the jogger “I’m bloody soaked!”
