Apologies for these omissions. Andrew



It is with regret that I am cancelling Sunday’s walk from Charing. This is due to the closure of the M2 and the horrific traffic jams it causes. The plan this weekend is to divert the traffic from the M2 along the A251 to Challock, on to the A252 to Charing and then to J9 of the M20. As an example it took me three and a half hours to drive from Barham to Sittingbourne last Sunday. I do not want a repeat performance. Yours regretfully. Jim Bushnell

Walk 3531 Stanford North Sunday the 21st of July.

If you are attending this walk I would recommend that you wear long trousers. Also if you wish to book lunch at The Drum Inn after the walk that you contact them direct on 01303 812125. If you do I would suggest that you do not book a table earlier than 1pm. Colin


The bus timetable appears to have changed since the arrangements for the above walk were first made some months ago. The new transport arrangements are as follows: Trains to Ashford – leaving Deal 9.31am, Walmer, 9.34am, Dover 9.47am, Folkestone Central 9.59am, Folkestone West 10.02am and reaching Ashford 10.15am. Then a bus to Tenterden, leaving Ashford 10.25am, getting to Tenterdejn 11.11am. We then walk 7.7 miles of the Cinque Ports 100 route to Appledore to take the train back from Appledore station to Ashford. This is one mile longer than the 6.7 miles advertised in the programme, as the station is a mile from the village, but there is a nice footpath going most of the way. Graham Smith

First Aid Kits

If you are leading a walk in this programme and do not have a Walk Leaders First Aid Kit, please contact who can provide you with one. We would rather you had a kit that anyone could use on a walk rather than nothing at all.
