Third Friday Friends
Friday 26 April 2019
Friday Friends will venture forth on the fourth Friday in April, the week following Good Friday.
We have decided to visit Pitzhanger Manor and Gallery which has just reopened after extensive and expensive renovations. There is an exhibition of Anish Kapoor’s works called ‘Mirrors and how we see ourselves’. Entrance to both house and gallery is £4.95, but some may prefer to sit in the café to admire the gardens, also renovated.
Meet at 10 o’clock outside Ealing Broadway Station, near the stairs to walk to Pitzhanger Manor on Mattock Lane.

EALING FORUM MONDAY WALKING GROUP
I thought it would be a good idea to give new and regular Forum members some more information on the Monday walks.
The group has been running successfully for twenty plus years with John and Barbara Barrance as group leaders for many of those years.
The walks are not only about getting exercise but also about getting to know a group of people who become good friends as the months and years go by.
In a typical year there are a wide variety of walks, from local walks in the winter months to sometimes much further afield in the summer months to places such as Marlow, Essex, Kent and Docklands and each summer we all enjoy our annual trip to the seaside, walking from Leigh-On-Sea to Southend.
Most of the walks are within the Freedom Pass areas or if we travel further afield we can use the Group Travel scheme.
All walks leave from Ealing Broadway Station (meeting downstairs in the waiting room) at 10am sharp.
We have a coffee shop visit in the morning then walk for an average distance of three to four miles with a break for a packed lunch. We aim to be back in Ealing around 3pm to 4pm, sometimes earlier sometimes later, depending on destination..
If there are five Mondays in any month we treat ourselves to a pub/ restaurant lunch after a short walk.
There are no walks on Bank Holiday Mondays.
Each member of the group is allocated to lead two walks in the year and the final decision on the destination of the walk is made by the leader for that day taking into account weather and travel conditions.
New members will not be expected to lead a walk until they have been in the group for a few months and we have many well trodden standby walks to choose from if needed.
At present we are a group of twenty with an average turnout of thirteen walkers, men and women, in any week.
The walks have taken us to many beautiful places over the years so why not give it a try. (Most walks are at a strolling pace.)
A REMINDER ———ALL WALKS AND OUTINGS ARE TAKEN AT YOUR OWN RISK

Please Note – There will be no Scrabble Afternoon until further notice. We hope to resume in the Autumn.
