Denmead Parish Council
Statement from the Chairman of Denmead Parish Council
Denmead Parish Council provides a series of youth clubs for the children of Denmead and has done so for many years. We have a duty to the council taxpayers of Denmead to make sure that the provision is run as efficiently as possible and to the parents that we provide a suitable programme of activities for their children. As well as ensuring that we are meeting both our legal and contractual obligations, we also need to make sure that the service we are providing is safe and appropriate and attracting as many children as possible. To do that we have undertaken a review of the current provision with a view to seeing what needs to be refreshed to ensure a healthy youth club going forward.
WINTER WALKS 7
Details of this walk can be viewed using this link
DATE & LOCATION
25 March Harvest Home, Denmead
29 April The Red Lion, Southwick
In view of the state of the footpaths over the South Downs and in the light of the rain that is forecast this week, a decision has been made to postpone the original walk planned for next Saturday from East Meon. The walk, that was planned by Brendan Gibbs, will therefore probably be one of the first we attempt when the ground is firmer next autumn.
Despite the disappointment of not being able to undertake the East Meon walk, Judith and I have planned a 2 hour hike, totally on lanes, starting at the HARVEST HOME in Denmead at 10 am on Saturday. There are some stretches that are the same as we did on New Year's Eve, but we will not be hampered by wet underfoot conditions and a warm welcome is assured at one of the local pub afterwards. Can I stress that this walk is ACCESSIBLE TO WHEELCHAIR USERS, although I would point out there are a number of quite steeps hills, so in reality it is only for those in electric wheelchairs. I also have a shorter route, again all on lanes, should anyone feel they would be more comfortable walking for about an hour.
As usual I will be taking orders for lunch before the walk and have booked space in the restaurant and bar area (depending on numbers) for those who wish to join us for lunch around 12 noon. To give me some idea of numbers could I ask those who intend to stay for lunch to drop me an email or give me a ring. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
A full preview of the walk can be found through the attached link and I hope as many of you as possible will be able to join on this penultimate walk of the winter season. As always, if the weather is poor on the day or you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me on one of the following numbers: 023 9279 6265 or 077 1166 1918.
Look forward to seeing you on Saturday.
