Winter Walk 4 - Saturday 28th December - Denmead Community Centre - 10.30am
Over 30 braved the muddy conditions at the end of November and enjoyed a lovely walk from Rowlands Castle around the Stansted Estate during which many points of interest were highlighted by the walk leader, Phil Hoar. Throughout the two-hour romp everyone waited patiently to get over a number of stiles nevertheless all returned to our starting point in good humour, if a little mud splattered. Those who chose to stay for lunch at The Castle Inn received efficient service and a very good meal. Once again, our thanks to Phil and Judith Hoar for planning this very successful walk.
We will undertake the usual post-Christmas walk from the village, but this one will rather special as it is in memory of Lesley Milne, a long-standing member of the walking group who sadly died earlier this year. Lesley's mother, Liz, tells me that her family are coming from different parts of the country while Lesley's brother is flying over from Germany to be with us. Everyone is welcome and we will raise a glass to Lesley at The Fox & Hounds after the walk.
Please note that there are shorter self-guided routes available for those who feel they cannot cope with the full one and I will direct families with small children to a route 'around the block' on lanes, all of which are designed to end at the pub around midday!!

Hope to see you on the 28th.
