Awful news I’m afraid. No pub lunch. The Cat and Canary is closed for refurbishment and is not reopening until 4pm on the 28th. So it will have to be a picnic lunch.

Just a reminder about this Saturday's fine walk! The weather is looking fair but more comfortable for walking than recently. This walk will explore the quieter northern escarpment of the Eastbourne Downs!
The full walk is long for a Saturday but there is a chance for people to stop at Alfriston and to finish there if preferred.
Packed lunch on the Long Man and lots of refreshment opportunities at the end if desired, including the appropriately named Old Boot Inn!

Owing to Mick T's indisposition, and logistical problems about access to the field, I'm sorry to say that the BBQ planned for 6 July has been POSTPONED. We will try and rearrange for a date later in the summer. Watch this space. I plan to put on an alternative walk on 6 July. Please check the programme nearer the time for details. Mike
