This is a past event.

Woking (participal vb.) Standing in the kitchen wondering what you came in here for. The meaning of Liff. Douglas Adams & John Lloyd.

What

Almost all of Surrey is mapped. But Woking sticks out like a sore thumb as the most un-mapped town in the county. This weekend we are going to fix that.

Apart from roads, Woking has a pedestrianised town centre, several commons and heaths, and a well developed and signed network of cycle paths. So there's mapping opportunities for people with any mode of transport.
