"Final reminder for this Sunday's walk - meet outside East Finchley tube station at 11-45am for a 12 noon start. I have attached a poster. Good news on the weather front for walkers - Saturday and Sunday will be more cloudy than during this week and the max temperature will be down from 30 to 24 degrees cent. Nevertheless it's still hot and you are recommended to bring at least 500ml of drinking water.
"We will stop for lunch along the disused railway line, so a packed lunch is also recommended BUT if you can't manage a packed lunch, we will be just 50 metres from The Royal Oak (I don't know what they serve for lunch). Strictly 30 minutes for lunch though.
"We will walk in shade as far as possible and there are a lot of trees along our route. For anyone who gets tired, we will get/direct you to a 102 bus stop, there are many drop out points along the way. At Muswell Hill Broadway there are many buses. There are toilets at Cherry Tree Wood (near the start), The Clissold Arms(Fortis Green), The Royal Oak, The Grove Cafe and Ally Pally.
"The distance from start to end is 3.9 miles. If anyone would like a map or further information please RING me on 0208 346 5503, I won't be carrying surplus papers unless I can offload them before we start walking. One final point: Harriet Copperman will be coming along at 11-50 to give us a short talk about the work of The N2 Gardeners and show us the station garden. Hope to see you Sunday,"
