The 124th Surrey Mid-Week Event returns to the Shepherd and Flock in Farnham and it is also a Community Celebration Event, so a chance to celebrate the creation of Geocaching back in the year 2000. You will also earn the Community Celebration Event icon, not available since 2010!
This will be held on THURSDAY 26th August 2021, and as usual for the Farnham Event, will be held at :
The Shepherd and Flock Public House
Moor Park Lane,
Shepherd and Flock Roundabout,
An opportunity to meet and greet other cachers from the local area, Surrey, Hampshire and Berkshire and perhaps further afield over a glass beer and some good pub grub.
The pub is a familiar landmark in the middle of a very busy roundabout on the A31/A325. Take care as you arrive - you have to get into the lane nearest the roundabout and then turn into a short slip road which guides you onto the wrong side of the road - fortunately it is a only a narrow lane serving the pub, a post box and a few houses. Take similar care when you leave.
The pub management have been very welcoming, but would obviously like to have some idea of numbers and particularly those who want to eat. You don't need to choose your meal, but it would help if you could indicate if you expect to eat in your Will Attend logs.
The menu for the food can be found on the pubs food website at https://www.thehutfarnham.com/our-menu
The Surrey Events have been inspired by the success of the Sussex and Hampshire meets and are normally held on the 3rd or 4th Thursday of every month - the COVID period excepted of course. They are organised by local cachers and can be held anywhere in the ancient county of Surrey.
Caches : There are plenty of nearby caches, including one within a few yards of the Pub, and others nearby in Farnham, Badshot Lea and Aldershot.
Geocoins/TB's: There will be the normal opportunity to swap and discover Travel Bugs and Geocoins.
