On New Year’s Eve Veronica led 10 of us on a short stretch of the Capital Ring. First we made a short diversion into Crystal Palace Park to view the dinosaur sculptures. They date from 1854 and look splendid after recent refurbishment. From here we followed the Capital Ring through parks and streets to Streatham Common where the cafe was open for tea. The rain, which had mostly held off, began so the finish of the walk was well timed.
