A circular walk around Lewes. Meet at Lewes station 10.30. Cars would be useful as possible escape route after lunch! The walk includes an 11th century priory - a hidden valley with a lost village - lunch at Rodmell and return along the river or by car if available. 40-50s Leader.
Weather forecast is good!
I will be at the front of Lewes Station at 11.00 Sunday morning and whatever the weather we will make it to Glynde and the Trevor Arms for lunch. The plan is to walk back in the afternoon but there is the escape route of the train from Glynde to Lewes. Plenty of tea shops in Lewes for afternoon tea.
See you at 11.00
P.S bring waterproofs .......?

I cannot lead my ramble on May 26th. It is a bank holiday weekend. However if someone fancies leading my planned walk or one of their own that would be great. Please contact Andy the 40s_50s walk coordinator firstname.lastname@example.org

Philippa Creasey and I are organising the Hay weekend this year. The centre has been booked for four nights Friday June 1st - Monday 4th. The cost will be £75. This includes the centre accomodation plus a meal on Friday evening and food for three packed lunches.
Please send cheques to Philippa - either a £10 deposit or the full amount:
Meet 11.00 am Lewes Station then walk over the downs to Glynde via Mt Caburn with views of the Ouse valley towards Newhaven.
Lunch at the Trevor Arms and then return for tea in Lewes.
The walk is really only six miles and for the fainthearted there is a train option back to Lewes after lunch!
We are organising a short ramble starting from Stanmer Park which will be suitable for children from the very young up to ten year olds. The walk will be appropriate for buggies.
The ramble will be on October 30th starting at 14.00 from the pond near the Church in Stanmer village and will be two miles long at a suitable pace.
I am hoping that a group of parents will attend who may want to meet more regularly for these family friendly walks.
