Dave ably led Belinda, Frank, Barry and John along the Pilgrims Way to the Pond Cafe at Otford where we met John and Meike. Mark, who was still recovering from a fever, met us there in his classic Mini. The smoked salmon and scrambled egg was delicious. The weather continued to be extraordinarily mild @ 16 degrees so Dave was still wearing shorts and aimed to set an Anerley record by doing so until the end of the year. We tackled the steep, short climb up “Old Polhill” track at the end of Twitton Lane to the top of (new) Polhill and thence back via Halstead and Knockholt.
