We are the Brighton and Hove group of the national Ramblers. Walking and socialising in and around the South East of England.

May 2013 Announcements (15)

20 / 40’s walk Sunday 2nd June – Circular walk around Hassocks & Hurstpierpoint taking in Jack & Jill Windmills & Wolstonbury Hill.

If you’d like to join the walk take the 10:15 train from Brighton to Hassocks, I will meet you at Hassocks station on The Hassocks pub side. 

There is a car park at Hassocks station for anyone driving straight there, please arrive for 10:30 walk start.

Most of the walk is before lunch so suggest you bring snacks to keep you going. Lunch will be at the New Inn, Hurstpierpoint and after that it is a short, flat walk back to Hassocks station.

Hope to see some of you on…

Cancelled - 20-40s circular walk Upper lodges-Clayton circular Sunday 16th June

Due to unforeseen circumstances I'm afraid we have to cancel the 20s40s walk planned for Sunday 16th June. Apologies for this.
We will re-schedule it and add it to the new programme, which starts in July.

Adur circular 20-40s, Sunday 26th May

Reminder...there's no change to the advertised walk. Meet level 10am. I don't drive, so really appreciate it if some people could come to level with cars, as opposed to going straight to start point. Thanks.

Morning part of walk is quite long, so I suggest bringing a bit of snack fodder, and we can stop for a snack break mid morning.

The main trough is in kings head pub, beeding. Adur river bank close by for picnickers. The afternoon part of the walk is relatively short.

Unfortunately, owing to an appointment (that I was expecting  in April or May) I will be unable to lead this 7 mile walk and would appreciate if someone could take it over for me please.

The walk as planned, starts from the village car park and proceeds along the Old Coach Road to Alciston, returning via Charlston farmhouse, Firle park and followed by an optional drink/lunch in The Ram.

I would, of course, give any assistance that may be necessary

Thank you in…

We shall be catching the 9.19 am fast train from Brighton Station, changing at Clapham Junction, arriving Hampton Court at 10.42am.   As there is a chance of a shower, I suggest looking for a café in Kingston for lunch, although you can bring a picnic if you prefer.

An All Zones Travel Card will include Hampton Court.

Cotswold Outdoor Evening - 15 May

This event IS STILL ON despite the disappointing number of members who have signed up to attend.  It's not too late to come along and grab a bargain, or just to seek expert advice on footwear, rucksacks or clothes layering.  I hope others will still feel able to join in and support our group attendance.

I am becoming increasingly upset by the amount of rubbish spoiling our beautiful countryside.

On a walk Anthony led a while ago,we gave out carrier bags (a small bag was used as a "glove"),and collected two big black sacks of rubbish by the end of the walk.

If we all carried a plastic bag and picked up a bit of rubbish instead of just walking by, it would make a huge difference, please do think about it!

Many thanks Christine

Seaford to Birling Gap Sunday 5 May

Quick reminder from Karen and myself...no change to advertised times. Join bus 12A at 9:47 sealife centre stop K, or join walk start at 10:29 Seaford library bus stop.

It seems there is a faster 13x bus, same stops as above, but 9:52 and 10:23. It's better, if you want to use it. But, for myself, I think I'll stick to the advertised bus, so as not to confuse walkers who've read the original programme but not this update. Either way, we start 10:29 Seaford library.

Lunch is… Continue
