A SCENIC WALKING GROUP WITH A DIFFERENCE!.....

Most of our walks are at shorter distances - from 3 to 9 miles at a comfortable pace with regular stops (there may be the odd longer walk dependent on location).

We usually alternate walks between Hampshire and West Sussex but occassionslly we may venture further afield if there's somewhere interesting to visit.

We don't do route marches and nobody gets left behind - if you're running late at the start we will always hang on for about 10 minutes before setting off.

As a result of the Covid 19 Global Pandemic, group sizes for each event will now be a maximum of 20 for the foreseeable future; there will also be a Waitlist of up to 5 Places per event, incase some members can't make it and spaces are freed up allowing others to go instead. As a result of reducing group sizes, plus one's will ONLY be allowed at the Organiser's / Event Host's discretion.

Our Walks do fill up very quickly, so please remember to check the group page regularly so you can keep up to date with any upcoming events and RSVP as soon as you can, to avoid disappointment.

We sometimes organise Evening Walks in the Summer to take advantage of the lighter evenings - these usually happen on a Friday Evening. We may hold the occasional Social Event as well such as a Meal Out, Picnics/BBQs, visits to Beer Festivals, or Pub Nights etc.

We don't stand on formalities too much but do ask, if your plans change, please update or remove your rsvp as soon as possible, so other members can attend.

Any member who fails to attend 3 consecutive events without changing their rsvp beforehand will be banned from this meetup group - 3 strikes and you're out!!

Similarly if you have not logged on to the group in 3 months or more (after the removal of Lockdown restrictions), you will also be removed to keep membership numbers manageable.

Please remember to be considerate, respectful and kind towards other members any sign of trouble which causes upset to other members, and you will be banned for life!

You don't need to have all the gear, just comfortable clothing and footwear and a desire to enjoy a nice walk with friendly, like minded people. We have a lot of dog lovers (myself included) in our group, so if you're a dog owner and would like to bring them along with you, you're very welcome to do so, but they must be kept on a Lead if we're walking in an area with horses and farm animals etc and in public areas.
