Healthy Walks

Summer Walk 15 – Denmead Community Centre – Tuesday 14 August – 7pm

 Despite the threat of rain and the earlier start necessitated by the evenings drawing in, 26 eventually joined us on Tuesday evening for at times was a strenuous walk culminating in a magnificent 360 degree panorama from the top of Soberton Down. After-walk drinks at the White Lion were therefore well-earned.

 The penultimate walk of the season next Tuesday goes from Denmead Community Centre at 7pm and details can be found by CLICKING HERE. Our season of summer walks concludes on the 21st August when again we start at 7pm and that evening go from The Vine in Hambledon.

 As always please contact Lydia Merriman at DPC office for further details and to find out what is planned for walks throughout the winter.

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.
