We are delighted to announce the first in the 2020 season of Compassionate Friends Walks, led by bereaved dad Terry who is an experienced Walk Leader.
The first walk of this year will be held on 13th April 2020, Easter Monday.
We will meet at London Bridge Station at 11am at the Official Meeting Point on the Upper Concourse of London Bridge Railway Station. This is the same level as the Bus Station and near Marks and Spencer.
The Walk will be for approximately 5 miles at an easy pace with a stop for lunch at a cafe or pub. The walk should finish at around 3.30 pm at Canary Wharf which has good transport links back to Central London. This part of London is expected to be relatively quiet even on a Bank Holiday. Last years Easter Monday Walk was so quiet it felt as though we had London to ourselves!
We will visit: St. Katherine’s Dock, Wapping, Tobacco Dock & Narrow Street before a stretch of the Thames Path then on to Canary Wharf.
At the end of the walk, there will be the option of staying on for a drink in a nearby pub before making our way home.
There is no need to contact Terry to confirm your attendance, just turn up on the day.
Come and spend your Bank Holiday with other bereaved parents, grandparents and siblings on what we hope will be an interesting and enjoyable day.
This is the third year that we have held these walks which have been well received by many bereaved parents. Some have become regular attendees and for many, these walks have been their first contact with Compassionate Friends and perhaps a less daunting step (if you pardon the pun) towards our supportive Community.
We hope to run six walks throughout the Spring & Summer every four weeks or so, and all will be advertised here. We look forward to seeing you all then.
Please remember to wear comfortable shoes.
