20/40's afternoon walk Sunday 4th March

Following requests, a shorter 20/40's afternoon walk this week.  The walk starts at 2pm and, with half an hour or so at the Chattri, we should return by 5pm. Rather unusually there won’t be any pubs or tea shops on this walk – so please bring any food and drink that you want!

We’ll be meeting where the walk starts and finishes. This is near the Horsdean recreation ground in Patcham (just off Vale Avenue where it does a right angle turn at grid ref TQ304092) and not the…

Possible Dorset weekend Feb 15/16 2013

Hi everyone.

The subject came up during the Dorset holiday this year of the pretty poor comfort levels at the Youth Hostel  in Litton Cheyney. Several people were still keen to 'do' Dorset but in maybe a more comfortable way. As a result, I've had a bit of a look and have found a group of cottages/barn conversions in Abbotsbury which would  be suitable for up to about 24 people. They all have either ensuites or a bathroom shared…

March 13th - 7-9pm - How to rethink your career options and find fulfilling work - with Roman Krznaric

In this workshop on how to rethink your career options and find fulfilling work, Roman Krznaric will be discussing whether we should abandon the ambition of becoming a high achiever and instead aim to be a 'wide achiever'. He will also be exploring the psychology of career confusion, explaining why we need to put ourselves on 'radical sabbaticals', and revealing just why we should not attempt to find our vocation - we should grow it. 

Roman Krznaric is a cultural thinker who advises…

20s/40s Rye Walk This Sunday - Bring On The Pecten Maximus !

Just a note re this Sunday's walk from Peasmarsh to Rye, they've moved the fabulous Scallops festival back a week ! The walk will still go ahead this Sunday, however there is no guarantee of Scallops for lunch at the pub, although I suspect their inclusion on some menus is somewhat likely..

It's an 8 mile circular walk from Peasmarsh to Rye with a pub or picnic lunch & possible short heritage walk. We'll leave the West Side Of The Level promptly at 10am (please don't snigger about…

Saturday 11 February walk

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

Saturday walk - 11 February

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…

Last call for 40-50s walks for next programme

Hi all, there are just a couple of spaces left for 40-50s walks for the March-June programme - if anyone else feels like having a go at leading a walk, there are spaces on 4 March and 3 June (that's the Hay Festival weekend and also I think the Royal Jubilee, so maybe a good option if you want small numbers turning up!). Alternatively we could add some Wednesday evening walks in May/June. I have another week or so to finalise, so let me know ASAP if you're interested. And huge thanks to…

Sussex Area AGM


At this event, held at Bosham, the chairman made a special mention of group's websites stating that they were all good but the Brighton & Hove site was the most professional. It was most unfortunate that only 3 BAHR members attended to hear the comments. The main item of discussion was communication between the county and group members due to the high cost of publication and postage. Following a vote at the AGM it was agreed to reduce the number of news releases from two per…

Rottingdean Sunday 20s-40s 10am Level



Just to let you know my customary Rottingdean walk via Woodingdean is taking place this Sunday. I maywell decide to alter the post lunch part of the walk due to the fact that walking back to the Pier is a bit of a long hard slog and may well opt for a loop instead via Roedean and Ovingdean, getting a bus back to Brighton from Rottingdean at the end! It worked very well on Sarah's walk in January.

Snow is a threat on Sunday so beware and bring warm woollens! Don't…

20s - 40s Walks Programme Reminder

Dear All


So far I have two walks for the next programme and that includes one that I am involved in!  So please, please, please send in your walks asap.  I understand that the walks are being very well attended and that there are lots of new faces.  It would be a shame not to have the programme brimming with the walks we all so clearly enjoy (spot the desperate blackmail!!). 


It is dead easy - pick a walk from a book or the internet, fill in the table in the leaders area…
