Healthy Walks

Winter Walk 1 – Saturday 29th September - The Churchillian – 10am

 The series of 16 walks every Tuesday evening throughout the summer ended on a high note with 47 joining the group for a short walk on the lanes and footpaths around Hambledon, the majority of whom filled the pub garden of The Vine for a well deserved post-walk drink. Due to the wonderful weather all planned walks were completed with many new faces joining the group. For a review of the summer season please CLICK HERE.

 The timetable of WINTER WALKS for this year is as follows:

29 Sept  Public Car Park next to The Churchillian - post walk lunch at The Churchillian

27 Oct  Harvest Home, Denmead

24 Nov  East Meon Public Car Park – lunch at Ye Olde George Inn, East Meon

29 Dec  Denmead Community Centre – finishing at The Fox & Hounds.  

 With the exception of the December walk which starts at 10.30am all the others will set off promptly at 10am.  A menu will be available for those who wish to order lunch, the latter being phoned through to the pub before we set off on the walk.  As always a preview of each walk will be posted on the DPC website at least a fortnight before each walk, but if you have any queries please contact LYDIA MERRIMAN at the DPC office on 023 9224 7947.

Proposed Development in Denmead

The next development proposal to affect our local area is likely to be an infrastructure project led by AQUIND Limited.

The concept, according to AQUIND, is that by connecting the French and UK grids both countries can balance supply and demand by reducing the risk of loss of power. It is estimated the Interconnector could become operational by 2022.
