Walk Report

Linear from Hassocks to Hove, Sunday 22nd February 2015
9 walkers, 23 miles - leader Margaret Romanski
Eight hardy souls joined Margaret for this excellent walk through the Downs in the face of stormy weather. In the event, the ladies proved hardier than the men, with five turning up compared to a much less impressive showing of just three from the men!
