What we're about

Well, after two months of lock down, we are finally able to see each other again, even if we will be keeping 2m apart for now. This group is to help all of us who need the scenery and fresh air of the new forest (and quite possibly some places further afield at some point) for mental, physical and spiritual well-being. I'll be organising some walks, a bit of a chat and one day soon, I hope, a beer in a pub garden.

Everyone welcome, including dogs and well-behaved dog owners.

Hi All,

Thank you all for supporting this group because you really do make it what it is & pleasure to be part of therefore, here is another walk.

The purpose is to bring like-minded people together while socialising face to face, helping loneliness as well as having some really meaningful conversations & connections is being achieved, which is lovely to see. I know this is helping others outside the group as well.
Thanks for all the kind posts afterwards. Have a look at the past walks, comments & the pictures!

I do have one polite request, please can anyone who is booked on please attend or cancel to ensure we have the full group which was nearly achieved last time therefore, let's all work together to help everyone. If anyone who is not sure if they will be up for it until the day because of medical reasons, please drop me a message & I will make some arrangements for you. Am here to help everyone

One of the greatest pleasures in life is going for a walk. It clears your mind, stretches your limbs and gives you time to appreciate your surroundings, which we can so easily forget to do in our day to day lives. The Deerleap carpark is a ideal starting part to explore another part of the forest that we haven't seen yet & head towards Lyndhurst. If you want a pub there is the bold forester 1k from the carpark for a drink afterwards.

The new forest walk is around 6-7 miles across heathland, tracks & maybe some mud! The plan is to stop at at the stream for 10 minutes for a snack & a drink. It will be 2.5 to 3 hours.
