On a very cloudy day with rain forecast six of us met up by the Cliff top Café at Folkstone , we never planned this as a long walk but a get together and stroll
We started off in the Cliff Top café just as it opened and Mr   GY treated us all to a drink, this is worth mentioning as we then had to stop him crying . Most of the party then tucked into food in various forms served by some very nice ladies .
The café is well worth a visit not only for its excellent service and food but the views
After being refreshed we slowly walked along the cliff top path towards Folkstone to the Battle of Britain Memorial site especially to see the newly opened building
Again recommend you pay them a visit
Then simply back to the start point no distance at all but a pleasant day in good company
Sorry but mainly due to the rubbish weather photos rather tame

This week 7 of us met in the car park at Chilham and with the sun shining we set off up the hill into the square at Chilham village This is always one of the sites that could only be in England
As we have been here many times before we did not slow down to admire the many Tudor buildings but well worth a visit
A quick glance at the "castle" and down School Hill to Mountain Rd that goes past the back of the Castle . This is rather a long road but leads past a very nice house build in about 1450 Then onto Kings Wood By now the clouds covered the sky and we lost a lot of the real beauty of the bluebells
We chose this walk to see these Bluebells but although a lot were out I think it will be a lot better in a week or so
Basically we just wandered through the woods before returning to Chilham In all just over 7 miles

virtually our full complement , eight of us met up at the car park in Charing Only JB missing "get well soon JB we need you to keep GP in check"
We set off through the village of Charing embarking on a route we have never tried before. A quick stop for sausage rolls by some then of through the public footpaths As I was totally lost I cannot describe the route here other than we did get lost a few times but skirting the village of Pluckley we had a shortish section along a very busy and narrow main road. Then into Little Chart across country to Charing A very tiring 9 1/2 miles about 4 plus hours
