This announcement is on behalf of the High Weald Walking Festival to help promote this fantastic festival now in its 3rd year. Under 'normal' conditions the walks are guided but this year they have worked phenomenally hard to create self-guided walks in the beautiful Sussex High Weald. You don't have to be a Ramblers member to join so please tell your friends and family about it. Enjoy!

I have been asked by Sussex Rambler magazine to help publicise this event:
On behalf of our Chairman I have organised a charity walk in aid of the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity around the countryside of Hurstpierpoint and Wolstonbury Hill. There is a 3km or a 9km route. This charity is important to our Chairman as they successfully treated his 18 month grand daughter for cancer, she is now a bubbly 10 years old.
