London & Southern


Benson breakfast - Waterfront Cafe, Benson, Wallingford, Oxon 

6th September 2020

So far the weather forecast for Sunday looks good, albeit a little chilly first thing.

Unfortunately I won't be able to make it this month, but hopefully some of you will. The cafe is open from 9.30. One thing to note, is that at our meeting last month, the owner was a bit sensitive about having people from several households around one table - from memory there were 6/7 of us at one big table. So depending on how many people turn up, it might be better to split the group across 2 or 3 smaller tables.

Regarding the next mid-month meeting further South, after some confusing information on the Haven cafe Facebook page, I have confirmed they ARE open on Sundays. I went there the Sunday before last, and they were open. So the mid-month meeting will be on SUNDAY 20 September at the Haven cafe, as in Tourider. All being well, I should be at that one.
