2015 Along the South Coast with Zdena (and a bunch of Czechs from Kladno)

In August we had a visit from Zdena Biggsova and group of teachers from the Czech town of Kladno, some retired, some still teaching. This time Zdena decided she wanted to have a look at the South of England so we went from West Lulworth in the West to East Eastbourne in the East. And of course to London.

The programme went something like this
