I have looked at the weather forecast for tomorrow, Saturday, and the winds during the walk period range from 49 to 54 miles per hour with gusts of up to 60 mph hour. So in the interests of safety, I am cancelling this walk. Jean

No parking in Falmer due to football match so for 28/29 bus - alight at Falmer Station stop and take path through to bollards to meet leader. If taking 25 bus - alight at Sussex House stop - go uphill to T junction, turn right and meet leader at bollards. Aim to start walk at 10.15 am. The walk will finish at Lewes Prison but there is a pub nearby and sandwich bar. Obviously there is an uphill section to get to Blackcap.

My apologies, but I will have to cancel my walk on Ashdown Forest on Saturday due to a knee problem. I don't think 9 miles on the forest terrain will help it recover! Jean
The forecast is for dry weather so I hope some of you will join me on the above walk. It's 8+ miles and passes through woods and fields. There are 2 pubs in Fletching for lunch as well as a cafe and places for a picnic. I shall be at the start which is at the top of the main car park in Uckfield - aim for the church spire - but there should be transport from the meeting place at Preston Park Station at 9.30 am - London Road side. Jean
Just to let you know that Diana will be leading this 7 mile walk as I am recovering from a broken fibula. Her contact numbers are 07799604476 or 01273 239458 - evenings only. Details for meeting as in the programme. The weather forecast is good and it's dry so hope you will come along.

Hope to see some of you on this walk tomorrow. It will be cold with an easterly wind so please have warm clothing - there may be rain/snow1 However, there are some ups and downs so that should keep us warm and there is always The Juggs at the end.

Just a reminder about the 6.5 mile coastal walk from Newhaven to Exceat this Saturday. Number 12A bus leaves Churchill Square at 0930 and arrives at Denton Corner lay-by at 1011. Hope to see some of you on the walk; it will be cold but dry, according to the current forecast. I will meet you at the start of the walk. Jean

The forecast is sunshine for tomorrow! However, the northerly wind will be strong so if you are coming please have warm clothing as part of the walk is quite exposed. Some respite in the pub in Eastbourne; probably best to come in the pub for lunch or coffee. Hope to see you in East Dean.

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

According to the weather forecast there will be an easterly wind on Saturday so I am planning to start the walk at Worthing Station so we will have the wind behind us all the way to Littlehampton Station and it will therefore be less cold. All the train arrangements and meeting place remain the same - a day return ticket to Littlehampton will be required. Jean 07985608845
Hope you'll join me on this walk along the coast from Littlehampton Station to Worthing Pier. The temperature is supposedly improving by the weekend - at least four degrees above freezing. Hopefully there may be a cafe open for coffee but please bring a drink and picnic just in case. The walk goes along the seafront on promenade or on grass and, if the tide is right, we may be able to walk on the beach. The train leaves Brighton at 9.44 am, Hove at 9.53 am, Shoreham-by-Sea 10 am and…Continue
