As you may know, the Ramblers has launched a competition to find Britain’s Best Walking Neighbourhood - and Hastings Old Town is on the final shortlist.  You can find a promotional video and vote…

Hi Everyone

Please note that the walk planned from Hassocks Station on 19th September WILL NOT GO AHEAD.  An event to celebrate the success of Sussex Ramblers in taking over the path and website is being considered for a later date.

Getting involved & Other stuff

Hi All

I thought it might be of interest if I circulated brief details of some opportunities to get more involved with the Ramblers' work as 'Guardians of our footpaths', together with a few other bits of information that you might wish to know about.

Apologies if you have heard about some…

Please influence how ESCC will manage RoW in the future

Hi Everyone
East Sussex County Council is asking people to tell them how they use, or don't use, the Rights of Way and certain Countryside sites that they manage.  They intend to use this information to draw up a plan for managing RoW and these Sites in the future, no doubt with a smaller budget and fewer resources available.  So the more people who contribute the better, not only to help get messages…

Thursday 10th April - Kingston circular

Fellow Thursday walkers

Having recently walked my proposed route, I will change the stretch back down into Kingston as the loose chalk and steep path are a dangerous combination. Instead, we will walk down Breach Road, which is a longer but better way to return.  The walk will now be 'Leisurely' and about 6 miles long.

Hope to see you there!

Thursday walk - Postponed, with a cuppa and cake instead!

As the conditions underfoot for tomorrow's walk at Barcombe Cross will be slushy snow, ice and a considerable amount of mud, I have decided to postpone it until the next walk programme.  Walking in these conditions would be difficult and arduous - not much fun!  So, as a last minute alternative, I will be at Preston Park station at 9.30am in the morning as usual and will then walk down through Preston Park to the Rotunda Cafe for a morning cuppa and cake.  If you feel like joining me, I will…
