Alton Webteam: May 2016
Don't forget the Spring Saunter! It takes place this Tuesday, 31st May, and is a two-hour walk on footpaths and bridleways, without stiles. We meet at the car parking area at Kingsley Pond, which is located on the south side of the B3004 next to the Cricketers pub, and will set off at 10am. If transport is a problem for you, please let me know and we'll try to sort something out.
No booking is necessary — just turn up! But if you fancy a bite of lunch at The George in Alton afterwards, please write your name on the list in the foyer by this Sunday, 29th May so that we can book a table. It will be a case of choosing your own food and settling up individually at the end!
Now, a date for your diary. Our Summer Stroll will be on Tuesday 23rd August when we will meet at Batts Corner, near Alice Holt Forest, for an early evening walk followed by a meal, possibly at The Blue Bell pub. Watch out for further details!
