We meet at the statue in Friary Park. If anyone doesn't know, the statue is very close to the main entrance in Friern Barnet Lane (opposite Park Way). We will stop for lunch in the New Southgate Recreation Ground - 45 minutes. There are no cafes nearby so it is essential that you bring a packed lunch with you. After lunch we head off along a very pretty stretch of Pymmes Brook and for some of the way we will be on a picturesque woodland walk. We then pass through a garden village and Oak Hill Park for a finish at the cafe there, where freshly prepared food is available. There will be poetry readings along the way and we will have a minute's silence at the old air raid shelter in the Rec.
