OSA Annual Holiday

The 2019 OSA Holiday will be based in Hereford, staying at The Three Counties Hotel, Belmont Road, Hereford, for six days (5 nights) from Sunday 19th May until Friday 24th May. The coach will pick up at Croydon 10.30 and Woking at 12.00 (and Hereford Station at 16.00 for those wishing to take the train there).

The cost will be £579.00. A deposit of £60.00 is required to secure a place, payable by the end of the year.  If you are interested in this, please contact Peter Blanthorn at


To prevent our long-established Ramblers Group collapsing, Vic West has kindly volunteered to undertake the role of Co-ordinator, to arrange the 2019  “Ambles” from May to October.

Vic feels the best approach to the “Ambles” would be for six or more individual volunteers each to arrange one 3 mile walk that, if possible, starts at a railway station and finishes near one! The route should be on level ground and have access to a toilet, and the end of the walk should conclude at an eatery of any kind! It doesn’t matter if the “Amble” is a repeat of one of your previous walks (you could do the walk in reverse order to make it more interesting!) – the important thing is to keep the group going!

Please would volunteers contact Vic by e-mail by 10th January please letting me know the “Month and short description of the walk you are willing to do”. Please help to keep this great group of people – with its camaraderie – going for at least another year (and maybe even more!). Vic’s contact details are:
