Walking
Tue Aug 21st Graham Gillies will lead a circular walk of about 4.5 miles starting from The Coach and Horses at The Street, Rotherwick RG27 9BG. After a short excursion in Rotherwick we head for Tylney Hall. We cross the golf course and head to Newnham. We then pass the outskirts of Hook and return across the fields to Rotherwick. We leave at 10am but you can order food from 9.45am. We should arrive back before 12.30.

Alternatively leave the WI hut at 0935.
Tue Aug 28th Either 8 mile Fancy Free walk from Cookham which looks very attractive, but is about 40 minutes by car. The alternative is from Cliddesden, 8 miles which does include a short section (about a mile) of the Farleigh Wallop route we did on the charity walk in April, but it does go very close to the Fox Inn, which may be attractive to some!
Choice by majority vote.
