Two BAHR ramblers are doing the Macmillan South Coast Mighty Hike - 26.6 miles

Hi all, a couple of ramblers have said that they would like to sponsor me doing the South Coast Mighty Hike for Macmillan on 10th June and asked if I could send them the link to do it. I thought I would let you know that another rambler, who is lovely, Ziggi, is also doing the walk. We won't be doing it together as we are in separate groups and she starts an hour earlier. I doubt that I will catch her knowing how fast she gets up a hill! 

It's a fantastic cause and a pretty long…

Hi All,

This Wednesday evening the walk will be around the Washington area.  The walk will have hills as we eventually climb to Chanctonbury Ring, hopefully in time for a great sunset.  We will then descend back to the pub for a well earned post walk drink.

We will meet at the south end of Preston Park (by the rose garden) at 7pm before driving to the start point in Washington.

I hope to see some of you there!

Let's hope the weather will be…

First of the Summer evening walks Wed 17th

Yes, its the start of the evening walks season!

The walk will be around the area of Bramber and is a circular. The walk is mostly flat, so we are easing you into the evening walk season gently.

There will be the opportunity for a drink in a pub at the end of the walk.

As this is the first walk in the season, there is a possibility that it might get dark towards the end of the walk.

We will be meeting at the south end of Preston Park in Brighton at 7pm before…

Seaford to Lewes walk Sunday May 7th

Hi All. Just to let you know that the Trevor Arms in Glynde has unfortunately closed down since I posted this walk! I put a message on Meetup but want all Ramblers to be aware that this will now have to be a picnic walk. There is a small tea room in Glynde but it wouldn't be fair to descend on them all at once so please bring food and drink. Hope for fine weather. Tess
