Breakfasts


For our four breakfasts a year we have coffee or tea beforehand from 8.15am the King's Arms in Market Hill.  At 8.30am around 24 of us sit down to a cooked breakfast and a good chat. Then at about 9.30am we enjoy listening to a speaker for 20 minutes or so.  After questions and answers we always finish at 10am latest. There is a modest charge for the breakfast. Previous speakers have included someone who sailed 22,000 miles around the high seas over six months as well as bishops, a folk singing priest and an agronomist. About a month before a breakfast we publicise it and ask people to sign up at the back of St. Mary’s church or via phone or email to  Bill Rose if interested  wjr2163@gmail.com  01799 516 609

M5 Lunches


On the 1st Wednesday of each month at our M5 Lunch (Men’s Monthly Mid-week Midday Meet)  twelve or so of us meet at 12.15pm in the King’s Arms pub on Market Hill Saffron Walden.
Over an hour or so we enjoy a pub lunch, a drink and each other’s company. It’s simple, totally informal, no signing up, no booking, no agenda, no strings and no tab.
A reminder is usually posted in our Grapevine newsletter the Sunday before.
 

Suppers


For our four suppers a year around ten men meet in a local restaurant (7 for 7.30pm) for supper.  Each supper is on a different day of the week and we’ve previously visited traditional pubs and Chinese and Indian restaurants. About a month before a supper we publicise it and ask people to sign up via a sheet at the back of St. Mary’s church or by phone or email.  That way we book enough places at the restaurant and co-ordinate lifts to and from out-of-town venues. Contact Bill Rose if interested - wjr2163@gmail.com  01799 516 609

Walks


Around six times a year we gather together at 10am on a Saturday below the tower of St. Mary’s Church Saffron Walden. We then share car lifts to the start of our walk. Our walks are around six miles in the countryside and they finish with a pub lunch.  Those who can’t make the walk often meet us at the pub for lunch. You should count on the walk involving some hills, muddy uneven terrain and fields with animals as well as stiles to climb over and overhanging vegetation to pass under.  So you’ll need to wear suitable  footwear and have some wet weather gear you can put on if it rains. If you haven’t joined us before then please do come along, or if you are a regular then invite a friend.  Contact Anthony Armon-Jones if interested toorfromanthony@gmail.com 07736 070 508 or 01799 516 733
