SATURDAY 17th AUGUST – KIERON DRUM [Photo Left] MEMORIAL PUB CRAWL
Once again. Matt Pringle has kindly volunteered to organise this annual event to remember the sad loss of Kieron Drum. Matt is going to stick with rivers and rugby as it worked well last year and it is good to see some of the better parts of London during the Summer. And the pubs are close together. So, Matt has decided on Richmond on Thames. The plan will be to meet at Canterbury West Station at 09:15 for the 09:36 train to Waterloo East where we will arrive at 11:19. We then transfer to the Waterloo main line station for the 11:28 overground service which arrives at Richmond at 11:47. For those joining us in Richmond, the first pub is aptly named The Triple Crown and we will there at midday. The pub is located at 15 Kew Foot Road TW9 2SS. Please, if you are travelling independently, check directions carefully as the pub is difficult to find. After that, plenty of other pubs will follow and will be arranged closer to the day. More details to follow.
