BLACKHEATH ramblers went on a walk with a special guest at the weekend - Lewisham East MP Heidi Alexander.

Around 40 people turned up to join Ms Alexander on the ramble from New Cross to Blackheath.

Arranged by Blackheath Ramblers and Lewisham Healthy Walks, it also gave people a chance to learn about history of the area.

Chair of the ramblers Mary Scott said ages on the walk ranged from eight to 80.

She said: "The history talks were really quite interesting and it was a chance for everybody to walk and chat informally with our MP."
