Otford Circular Walk March 2015

Peter led 45 walkers and 8 dogs on a superb walk from Otford station. The weather was

kind to us and remained dry throughout the walk.  Peter chose this area as we seldom walk

it and starting at Otford meant that walkers from London GOC could meet us at the train

station.  The 1st 20 minutes or so got the hearts going as we climbed up Otford Mount. The

walk was a superb mixture of open heath, woodland walks and a golf course. There were a

few stiles to contend with and 2 proved to be a challenge for the dog owners especially

trying to get 2 gorgeous Alaskan Malamutes over. The views at lunch time were stunning

and we were treated to a plane taking off from the private airstrip at Romnet Street Farm.

A warm welcome to our new walkers, we have seen new walkers returning on many walks

recently and this proves what a friendly club GOC is.

We ended the walk in Surrey of tea and cakes, I believe the bakers and shoppers were:

Sue – Cheese and sundried tomato muffins

Alice – Marshmallow topped cake

Chris – Salted caramel brownies

Charles – large cherry muffins

Robert – Fruit pies

Robert – Coffee walnut cake

Rupert – Ginger frangipane

Keith -  Chocolate cake, sorry no picture!

Jason – Salt Chocolate matzos

Gordon – Brownies

I would like to offer my thanks to the bakers and shoppers without you we would not have

the cake at the end. If I have missed any bakers or shoppers please accept my apologies, I

didn't see much of the cake 🙁 Some of our bakers use NT recipies and it would be great to

have additional bakers/shoppers as our group becomes more popular a link to the NT

recipe page is here There is also the opportunity for you to share your recipes on the Surrey forum

Also thanks go to Gordon and Sue for taking the photos

Hopefully see you all next month
