Sunday 12th December Christmas Lunch

Twenty-six members were in attendance at Westminster station for the start of a pre-Xmas Lunch walk on . We headed across Westminster Bridge and joined the Thames Path by the old County Hall building. We avoided the temptations of fairground rides and mulled wine stalls as we walked in an easterly direction to the Millenium footbridge, now no longer wobbly. Crossing to the north bank of the Thames, we made for Blackfriars Bridge where we left the riverside to walk to the Middle Temple. However, the plan to go through the gardens to Fleet Street was thwarted because the exit gate was closed. A diversion brought us back enroute at Temple Bar and then onto Lincoln Inn Fields. There, we passed a small classic car rally before crossing into Covent Garden and finishing at our lunch venue, the Freemasons Arms. Twelve more members joined us there and the new management at the pub provided an excellent repast in the upstairs function room. After our chair Hilary spoke about the Club’s past year and thanked the staff, we headed home in a festive mood.
