Alton Webteam: September 2016
AUTUMN AMBLE and Eating Event
The next Seasonal Walk will be a daytime one, and everyone is invited. It will take place on Tuesday 25th October and we are aiming to walk for about a couple of hours. The planned route is on generally well-drained sandy terrain, and hopefully it will be an opportunity to enjoy a pleasant walk in good company.
We're meeting at The Duke of Cambridge PH, which is south of Tilford on the road towards Rushmoor and Churt. We're planning on a prompt start at 10am, and no booking is necessary.
At the end, we're hoping to eat at the Duke of Cambridge, and if you would like a meal, whether you're planning to walk or would simply wish to join us at 12.30pm, please write your name on the list in the foyer by Sunday 23rd October, so that we can try to make a reservation. 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.
