SPRING SAUNTER and Eating Event
Following on the successful "Autumn Amble" and "Winter Wander", it's nearly time for our Spring Saunter!
The Family Committee has organised this daytime walk, and everyone is invited to join in. It will take place on Tuesday 31st May (during the school half-term break) 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 dry underfoot, and as the ground is mainly sandy it should not get muddy even after rain. Hopefully it will be another opportunity to enjoy a pleasant walk in good company.
We're meeting at the car parking area at Kingsley Pond, which is located on the south side of the B3004 next to the Cricketers pub. We're planning on a prompt start at 10am.
No booking is necessary — just turn up! It's a circular route of four-and-a-half miles, and we hope to finish by around midday. After that, some of us will be heading back to Alton for a bite of lunch at The George in Butts Road. If you're walking with us, we hope you'll want to join us then; if you would like lunch, please write your name on the list in the foyer by 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!
If transport is a problem for you, please let me know and we'll try to sort something out.

Autumn AmbleOvercast but enjoyable!There were just five people brave enough to tackle the wilds of Alice Holt Forest on a damp, misty morning. But the rain didn't come to anything, and the walk, exploring little-used parts of the forest, was enjoyed by all five.
