Budget trip to YHA Medway, near Rochester Kent, Friday 15th to Sunday 17th March 2019 (2 nights)

The Club has booked sole occupancy of the interesting restored oast house YHA Medway near Rochester in Kent for two nights in mid March 2019 (Friday 15th to Sunday 17th). This self-catering hostel has 15 mostly small bedrooms, including some singles, but these have all been snapped up fast! However, there are still several places available for both men and women – without having to use upper bunks!This area offers interesting walks close to the Thames estuary, as well as amongst the North Downs. It is in Charles Dickens land! The historic Chatham Dock Yards Museum is nearby. The cost is £45 per person – just contact Jill if you would like to join us.

Parking charge introduced at Magog Down

The Magog Trust has now introduced a parking charge of £3.00 at its car park. The machine only takes coins and doesn’t give change, so please make sure you have the correct coins before you arrive. If you are a regular visitor it may be worthwhile becoming a ‘Friend of Magog Down’; the annual fee for an individual is £15, or £12 for concessions, (aged 60 and over). Application forms to become a Friend can be downloaded from the Magog Down website.

Club website tidied up

Our thanks are due to Club Committee member Joan, who has trawled through our ever-expanding website to suggest some much-needed edits. So, photographs relating to past walks, trips and anniversaries have now been brought together under just one header ‘Photographs’, whereas previously they were spread over 4 locations. We have significantly expanded the ‘Members’ section – and removed ‘Past walks’, as it only contained photographs. Club ‘contacts’ now has its own header.We are working on removing very old content.  Thanks to Geoff for moving items around and deleting others – but work is still ‘in progress’.
