WINTER WALKS 2019-20
A bright sunny morning encouraged 37 to join us on the first walk of the winter season on a route that took in about half of the Denmead Millennium Trail. Due to very wet conditions the planned route had to be curtailed somewhat, however this meant a return to the pub around midday when 23 of the group enjoyed a well-earned post-walk meal together. It was nice to welcome back some old friends who had been unable to join us on walks for some time, while a couple of new members, Christine and Sharon undertook their first walk with us and stayed for the meal afterwards.
Winter Walk 3 - Saturday 30th October - Rowlands Castle - 10am
Despite the forecast of heavy rain 18 brave souls met at the recreation ground in Wickham for a walk initially toward Knowle Village then across the A32 before we worked our way back toward our starting point on footpaths to the east of Wickham. As predicted it rained for about 50% of the walk, but that did not detract from our enjoyment later when 12 of us enjoyed a convivial meal together at The Chairmakers.
Our next walk, planned by Judith and Phil Hoar, will be from The Green at Rowlands Castle and a full preview can be found by CLICKING HERE. As usual there is the opportunity to pre-book lunch at a nearby pub following the 2 hour trek around parts of the grounds of Stansted House and surrounding area - please arrive early if you intend to stay for lunch so the walk can start punctually at 10am.
