On Saturday 6 April 2019 Kevin McNamara led a walk along a much loved stretch of the Thames from Richmond to Hampton Court. For a week or so before the walk the website version of the Spring programme carried the details shown below, and one of the ramblers - Martin - has kindly provided the photographs also shown below which he took on the day:
