Alton Webteam: February 2016
On a glorious February morning, nineteen folk set off for a Winter Wander around Foley Manor and Folly Pond, near Liphook. Conditions were ideal for walking — except for the occasional muddy (very muddy) bits! The four children enjoyed running about and playing hide-and-seek in the Weaver Down woods, while adults continued their amble, with lots of conversation along the way.
Conversation continued over an excellent lunch in The Deer's Hut pub, and talk turned naturally to the Spring Saunter, which takes place on Tuesday 31st May. Put the date in your diary now!
