A bit of a different idea ...... we are going to combine an evening walk with pub stops. You don’t have to drink, you can have a coffee or soft drinks. Please meet me at 7.30 pm and we will walk to our first pub stop. We will then walk on to our 2nd pub stop and then again to our 3rd. The total distance is around 2 miles, so is not arduous and it will be a social evening with a bit of exercise thrown in :-) Please bring a torch with you. Free parking. Please join me for this fun evening with a difference. Meetup sub of £2 applies.
Walk Speed - Leisurely Distance - Around 6 miles Difficulty - Easy. no steep climbs This is a pleasant walk through Finchampstead and over to California Country Park, where we will stop for a drink and/or snack. The cafe there should be open, but you may want to bring something with you, just in case. We will have a break on the picnic benches there, before resuming the walk crossing more fields and back to Finchampstead church. Drinks at the Queen's Oak pub in Finchampstead afterwards, for those who would like to. Lots of free parking. Meetup sub of £2 applies please.
Belly Dancing, Smashing Plates, band and a set menu. Meet at 7.00 as we need to be seated early, and we can chat before the evening gets going at 7.30 The set menu is £28.00 and we will be asking for full payment for the food - first to pay gets a place - the table is booked for 10. All you will need to pay on the night is the tip and your drinks. The meal is a set price of £28 and consists of a 4 course meze, vegetarian option available. We cannot choose from the menu on their speciality night. Bank details will be added shortly and will be open to everyone at the same time. First to respond will get a seat. Please add your name to the Waiting List so everyone gets a fair chance
This is a very attractive walk, starting and finishing in the old hilltop village of East Worldham, south-east of Alton and not far from Selborne. (The photo above was taken by me when I walked the route). During the 7 miles, we take in part of the South Downs National Park. Later on, the route of the walk takes in St Leonard's Church, Hartley Mauditt, which having lost its village stands isolated beside the village pond. Please join me in The Three Horseshoes Pub after the walk for drinks and/or food. So that we don't hog the whole of the pub's car park, please car-share where possible. Thanks. Meetup sub of £2 please, payable in cash on the day.
