Thursday, 1st March Walk

Due to the fact heavy snow and winds are forecast for tomorrow I think the Bo Peep Car Park will be too dangerous so this walk is cancelled. Weather permitting I will lead a local walk instead, if you are interested please come to Preston Park or ring me in the morning using the number on the programme.

Fletching Circular Walk 22nd February

Just a request for those attending this walk. There is a small car park in Fletching which may only have limited space. If possible please come to Preston Park Station at 9-30 so that we can arrange for the fewest cars to travel. If you have a full car by all means go direct.

Stanmer and Sussex University border path Saturday 17th February 2018

Hi everybody, the forecast is good (at the moment), who knows, even the mud may have dried up.

This walk starts and finishes early to allow everyone to either go to the Albion Cup game (starts at 3) or to escape the bedlam in good time! Be aware that there has been some fairly crazy match-day parking at Wild Park, so you may want to consider your getaway if parking there!

In view of recent discussions, this is an assistance dog (and Humans) walk only.

Meeting…

Dogs on Walks - "Bring your dog"

The national ramblers web site is very positive about dogs on ramblers walks. In the group walks section it says

" Bring your dog

We know that many people enjoy walking with their four-legged friends, so we encourage all our walking groups to allow dogs on walks. Registered Assistance Dogs are allowed on any walk."



It is disappointing to see that Brighton and Hove Ramblers is further discouraging dogs and their humans from walking with the group by increasing the…

Alfriston Walk Saturday 10th February

Hi all,

Two messages for the walk on Saturday first off the start time for the walk is wrong it should be 10.15. Thanks to Jules for spotting it and apologies from me for not spotting it. 

Message number two is can anyone confirm they are bringing a car to Preston Park on Saturday morning so I can be sure of a lift (public transport to Alfriston is a bit of a pain) and Jules is also hoping to get a lift there.

Weather's looking ok but there will be some mud.

See…

Hello.

Due to very muddy conditions around Ditchling I have modified the route to avoid Ditchling and make The Half Moon at Plumpton our lunchtime stop. Distance is now 12 rather than 11 miles. All other details remain unchanged but please check beforehand.

Hope to see you on Sunday!

Cheers,
