Saturday tour along the South Bank, getting into London via public transport. Plus the Feast  - at this stage probably in the Scout centre by outside caterers.

Some people just want to attend the Saturday tour, those of you who just want to do that, please let me know if you want lunch at the White Hart, @ £8 per head (nominal - I have still yet to negotiate proper price).

The itinerary is as follows - minor time adjustments may be necessary, but it won't be much different. after all, it's Morris times, innit?
