The Baron's Bash

Monday 18 March 2024 12:00 PM

At the usual venue, Dulwich and Sydenham Hill Golf Club, Grange Lane, College Road, Dulwich, London SE21 7LH. Against the trend, the Club has agreed to hold costs to 2023 levels, so this year's price remains at £34 per head. Advise Jeremy Toye - jemtoye@gmail.com - if you plan to attend so he can tell you how to pay, and let him know if you are vegetarian or vegan, or have relevant allergies. Should you know of any present or former Reuters hand who hasn't been to a Bash and might enjoy hearing all the old Baronial anecdotes, please give their contact details to Jeremy to send them an invitation. Getting to the Bash is a matter of means and stamina. The Club has a spacious car park. Sydenham Hill train station is good from Victoria, Herne Hill good for users of Thameslink from Blackfriars and the north. Both stations are within Uber-shot of the Club, or call the Keen Group mini-cab on 020 893 1000. There is a short-cut to walk from Sydenham Hill (Herne Hill is too far to walk for most): here are the details from Tony Winning: Leave the station on the College Road side, cross the road on the pedestrian crossing and walk up the footpath opposite for a hundred yards or so, take the gate on the left into Dulwich Wood and follow the footpath straight on to the top of a small rise and then straight down the other side to another gate, go through and the golf club car park is opposite. Nice walk on a fine day, the woodpeckers are usually pecking around that time. For those not keen on the woods, especially if it is wet and muddy, turn left down College Road from the station, pass the tollgate at the bottom of the hill and immediately turn right up Grange Lane to the club at the top of the hill.
