The *Nosh*, Lewknor, Sunday 10th January 2016

A
nother New Year and weather permitting, what better way to get things off to a proper start than our traditional post-Christmas 'NOSH'! As usual, we are aiming to gather at 'Ye Olde Leathern Bottel' Lewknor (on the borders of Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire) lunchtime, Sunday 10th January 2016.

For newcomers, finding your way there could not be easier! Look for Junction 6 of the M40, at the foot of the Chilterns and head towards Watlington on the B4009 (that's heading left after leaving the motorway, coming from London, or right, coming from Birmingham). The first turning on the right after leaving the motorway, takes you into the village of Lewknor and to the door of the 'Ye Olde Leathern Bottel'. Try and arrange to arrive at around opening time (12 noon) to have the best choice from the pub's excellent menu and a comfortable seat (http://www.theleathernbottle.co.uk)!

Looking ahead to the 10th, the generally mild and unsettled weather that we have been experiencing in the southern half of the UK is expected to continue through into the first two weeks of the New Year. There is even a possibility that it may be drier with, perhaps a glimpse of sunshine on the day, but who knows! Whatever the weather, it should be a perfect day out!!
