Hastings & Rother

Walking: Longer

ALL ACTIVITIES ARE CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE BECAUSE OF CORONAVIRUS. A LIST OF CONTACT DETAILS WILL BE SENT OUT ENABLING MEMBERS TO CONTACT EACH OTHER.

Currently the group is now full and the waiting list is closed.

Please note that the Longer walks commence at 10.00 and the Shorter Walks at 10.30

We are offering both Longer Walks and Shorter. Full details of each are available if you follow these links and at Events. The aim is to join together at least twice a year for our socials at Christmas and during the Summer.

You have to register with each convenor so do not assume if you join one group you can turn up at the other. Please contact the leader beforehand. At times we may have to restrict numbers depending on the terrain and the catering capacity of the pub.

We walk on the first tuesday of the month. Our walks are generally of about 5 miles and always end in a pub for lunch. Leaders for each month vary and we are always looking for volunteers. Always check with the leader to ensure you have appropriate footwear for the conditions. In the summer please ensure you bring adequate supplies of water and use sun block.

For safety reasons we now have two HiVis Jackets one for the leader and the other for the backmarker. Additionally we are trialing the use of Walkie-Talkies to enable rapid communication between the leader and backmarker. We also have ICE (In Case of Emergency Cards). If you have lost yours please ask for a replacment on your next walk.

Also look at the link on the right for advice on first aid, safety and a leader's check list.

Bring and Share1 2019 In July both the Longer Bring and Share2 2019 and Shorter Groups joined forces. We had walks appropriate for each group with the Longer Group had a 4-5 walk mile into the Glens of the Country Park-a "good cardiac workout" the leader was told. The Shorter group was led by David and included a visit to Fairlight Church and the Coastguards' Tearoom. We were hosted by Valerie and David in theie beautiful garden where we had our shared lunch with contributions from all our members.

Stream Lane
In November 2019 Barbara,Lorna and Chas led us on a lovely walk around Pett with lunch at the Two Sawyers. The recent rain made it wet underfoot as you can see as we walked down an aptly named 'stream lane' but the rain held for for the actual walk.

We have had lovely walks around Rye Harbour Nature Reserve. Winchelsea2 Nov and a walk from East Dean to Birling Gap followed by a lunch at the Tiger Inn.

----- Bo-Peep Dec 2013 It is group policy that a back marker is appointed on all walks and that they are always in sight of the leader. A whistle needs to be carried by the back marker and the group has a whistle for this purpose. If you are leader please collect the whistle from the back marker and hand it over to the next leader.

Lorna has done some interesting research on the names of The Seven Sisters.

Look at the amusing poem as well 'Bringing Up the Rear'.
