Stratford Canal MEET UP 30th May 2021

Due to the ongoing relaxation of CORONA restrictions, we are able to plan another return MEET UP at The Fleur De Lys near Henley-in-Arden on Sunday the 30th of October. Obviously we will stick to social distancing as applicable at the time (new rules apply from 17th May). We had such a lovely time when we met there 2 years ago year and look forward to going back. We will meet at The Fleur De Lys picturesque pub on the banks of the Stratford Canal in Lowsonford. There is really easy access to this venue from the M40. The pub is very doggy friendly, but we will meet outside to give as plenty of space. They do not take reservations for external tables, but as we are there early we should be able to grab a few together. If the weather forecast is bad we will have to postpone the event as it will have to be an outside MEET UP.

We plan to meet at 11AM, take a walk by the canal (if it is not too muddy). There is also a field nearby that the dogs can run on. Around midday we can have lunch or a snack in the pub garden. EVERYBODY is welcome. If you feel you would like to attend the Fleur De Lys get together, please email us on, or you can phone 07770 798809. Please let us know how many people and how many dogs and everybody’s names (human and canine).

Fleur De Lys
Lapworth St

Nestled in the picturesque village of Lowonsford, on the banks of the Stratford Canal, between winding country roads that used to be part of the Forest of Arden, The Fleur De Lys is the very best kind of country pub little more than a stone’s throw away from Packwood House and Baddesley Clinton. The pub is a 10-minute car journey from the historic market town of Henley-In-Arden, 20 minutes from Solihull, and about half an hour from Warwick, Leamington and Stratford Upon Avon.

If you feel you would like to attend the Fleur De Lys get together, please email us on, or you can phone 07770 798809. We are also meeting in Chiswick West London on the 20th of June and in Maidstone Kent on the 11th of July. A MEET UP in Somerset in the autumn is also planned with the date to be confirmed.
