Weather for Sunday 29th April

The weather forecast for tomorrow has now improved, looks like the rain should clear by mid morning, hopefully by the time the walks are due to start and then should stay dry. Hope to see some of you tomorrow.

Walk on Saturday 28 April

The weather forecast is not too bad for my walk on Saturday which is about 10 miles starting from the Goat Car Park on Ashdown Forest and walking round the edge of Forest Row to Ashurst Wood for pub or picnic lunch.  Some track/byroad walking which might be beneficial as not too muddy.  Meet at Preston Park Station East Side at usual time of 9.30 am.  I will meet the group at the start of the walk, but there will be cars at the station.  Hope to see you there.  Jean 07985608845

If you want to check it out for yourself, …
