We have missed some of the Balham pilgrimage stages (have no fear we will return to them!), but we can report that, on Saturday January 28, Balham President, Steve Palmer, supported by six other pilgrims and two dogs, continued his steady progress along the Pilgrims route to Canterbury.
The latest effort saw the team complete the ten miles from Wrotham to Cuxton, just short of the Medway crossing. En route, they were all entertained by an acrobatic display provided by Brother Noel Brownsell, albeit he sadly misjudged a double-somersault with triple twist. Sadly, there was much mirth and little Christian charity on display as he measured his length on the North Downs Way. He soon bounced back, however, to lead a deep discussion on transubstantiation in bar of the Bull Hotel where the group enjoyed a post-walk pint by the fire. SP
