This event has been organised by Tony Colclough
As in past years, we shall enjoy a fine BBQ in aid of Cancer Research UK following a walk through old Thames Ditton village on the Thames. The food and drink will be contributed free and 100% of the proceeds from ticket sales will go to the charity. The BBQ will take place at the Organiser’s home at 34, Sugden Road, Thames Ditton, Surrey KT7 0AE. In the event of bad weather the fine BBQ will turn into a fine indoor buffet. Tea and cake will be provided before guests depart.

Where and when to meet: Assemble at 11:00 in the compact Café Noir, Platform 1, Thames Ditton Station. The manager has promised to admit anyone who buys refreshments to his W.C. Cars can park in Weston Green Road next to the station. After the walk we gather at 34 Sugden Road, Thames Ditton, Surrey KT7 0AE for the BBQ. The frail and infirm may like to go straight to the BBQ ca. 13:00.
Getting there : Thames Ditton is close to Surbiton and Kingston – upon - Thames. The Station is at Station Road, Thames Ditton, KT7 0PA. By train: Trains to Thames Ditton run from Clapham Junction and London Waterloo via Surbiton. For some, you need to change at Surbiton, but not for others. By car: Parking is easy in Weston Green Road outside the Station. Set your SatNav for KT7 0PA. Possible routes: (1) From the A3. Driving westward along the A3 pass under the Tolworth roundabout where the A3 crosses the A240 and where there is a large office block on your right. Take the middle lane and pass under the next roundabout. On emerging, immediately take the left exit onto the A309 Kingston By-pass. Proceed until you come to the confusing double island known as the Scilly Isles. Take the second exit onto the A309 again (Hampton Court Way). Turn right at the next roundabout into Ember Court Road which leads to the station where you turn right passing around the central column of the bridge into Weston Green Road to park. (2) From Kingston-upon-Thames, drive south-west along the Thames on the A307 Portsmouth Road and immediately after the Guy Salmon Dealership and the Angel pub on your left, turn right into Giggs Hill by the Green. At the end near the Cricket Club turn right into Watts Road, then left by the George & Dragon into Station Road. This takes you to Thames Ditton Station where you turn left under the bridge into Weston Green Road to park. (3) To the BBQ for those parked near the station. Leave the walk shortly before its end to collect your cars. To drive to the BBQ venue, head east along Station Road, turn right at the George & Dragon and left onto Giggs Hill Green emerging opposite the Angel pub.
