Alton Webteam: February 2017
The Family Committee has organised another walk, and as usual is inviting everyone to come along. It will take place on Tuesday 7th March and we are aiming to walk for about a couple of hours. Once again, the planned route is on footpaths and bridleways, and has no stiles to climb over! It's generally OK underfoot, mainly sandy, but it may be a bit muddy in places if there has been rain. Hopefully it will be an opportunity to enjoy a pleasant walk in good company.
We're meeting at the car park on the left-hand side of the Greatham to Liss Forest road. There's a "pedestrians" road sign and a 30mph limit sign just before it (and if you reach the level crossing, you've gone a few hundred yards too far!). We're planning on a prompt start at 10am.
After the walk, it is our custom to adjourn to a nearby hostelry for a bite of lunch, and this time we intend to return to a previous venue, The Deer's Hut, which is located on Longmoor Road, Liphook, not too far from our finishing point.
No booking is necessary — just turn up! It's a circular route of four miles or so, and we hope to finish by around midday. If you're not walking, but would like to join us for lunch, we'd be pleased to see you!
If you would like a meal, please write your name on the list in the foyer by Sunday 5th March, so that we can book a table. It will be a case of choosing your own food and settling up individually at the end!
If transport is a problem for you, please let me know and we'll try to sort something out.
