Fancy a Sounth Downs Special next weekend?

Hello everyone!

I can hardly believe we're well into February already.   This means that the good news is that the evenings are getting noticeably lighter, which is making it less of a rush to finish our weekend walks before nightfall.

So if you'd like to take advantage of the slightly longer evenings, why not join Margaret this Sunday for an uplifting walk along some of the best bits of the South Downs?

All the details are below, but please note that some of the details have changed compared to the original Strider notification


And once again while I've got your attention, I should remind you that it's the London LDWA's AGM a week on Tuesday, on 24 February.

You can get all the details by clicking here.


Hopefully I'll get to meet a good number of you at the AGM but in the meantime, have a great week and then enjoy being up in the Downs!
