In the HASSRALE social calendar, Maundy Thursday has become second only to the Chrstmas Party in enabling people to get together and update on who is where now and doing what (if anything). Once again a leisurely route has been identified, but instead I have adopted the following tour de force. We shall be following a route around Waterloo/Blackfriars Rd visiting a number of old haunts (but maybe not familiar to all of you). There was no formal full trial run hence the beers (and pubs) may have varied so beware, if the beer is off then we will move on. Approximate leaving times are shown in [ ] for those that wish to join the trip part-way through, but as in previous years allow some flexibility (and probably some backtracking may be necessary) since people tend to linger. Since the official membership no longer includes Honorary members, those of you who receive this missive may wish to let former members e.g. those who took the VERS offer know so that they can come along. Due to the need to circulate this rapidly you may receive this via E-Mail. If so there will not be a map attached hence you may need to consult an A-Z, otherwise follow us!

1. The Duke of Sussex - 23 Baylis Road [14.00]
Young's Ordinary (allegedly) and at least one guest beer - rumoured to have cut-price beer at times, but can't say I've noticed it.

2. The Wellington Tavern - 81 Waterloo Road [14.30]
Adnams Bitter & Broadside; Ruddles County; Boddingtons; Youngs Special & Ordinary plus a variety of other beers.

3. The White Hart - 29 Cornwall Road [15.15]
Bass; Fullers London Pride; Hancocks HB plus guest beer.

4. The Mulberry Bush - 89 Upperground [16.00]
Youngs Winter Warmer, Special & Ordinary.

5. The Rose and Crown - 47 Colombo Street [16.45]
Courage Best; Marstons Pedigree; Wadworth 6X; Boddingtons.

6. Paper Moon - 24 Blackfriars Road [17.30]
Bass, Worthington Best, Hancocks HB plus other beers.

7. The Prince William Henry - 217 Blackfriars [18.15]

8. The Ring - 72 Blackfriars Road [19.00 or whenever]
Burton Ale, Tetley Bitter, Triple Diamond (or guest beer).

At this point we are at the corner of The Cut (or half-Cut perhaps), so those who are heading back towards Waterloo Station may wish to call in at The Anchor & Hope and/or The Windmill. Alternatively The Kings Arms in Roupell Street is near by.

Hopefully see you all at some stage - John Wright
