Walking Group "D" 5 to 6 miles
Walking group "D" is intended for people who prefer to walk longer distances, typically 5 to 6 miles (8 to 10 kms). The terrain is not always flat and can include hills, but never prolonged steep slopes. Walks take place on the 4th Thursday of each month and are chosen for their interest and variety of scenery. A map and description are sent by email prior to each walk, which are generally within 30 minutes driving distance of Stubbington. The walks are mostly circular, beginning and ending at the same car park, and we always stop at the half way point for rest and refreshments. There is usually a pub or cafe near the end of the walk and we often enjoy a lunch together before parting company, but this is purely voluntary. Dogs are not permitted to avoid accidents with animals.
Walking Group "D" Back on the Beat
After the long COVID winter lockdown, Walking Group D took advantage of the relaxed outdoor meeting rules to break free and hold its first walk of 2021. An impressive 27 vaccinated walkers took part, which required careful organization to stay within the rules. Participants were put into groups of five or six, each with its own leader, and followed the route with around 50 metres between each group, thus abiding by the "rule of six". It was a wonderful sunny day as we set off from the village of Soberton and followed a five-mile route uphill and down across Soberton Down. Further details in this months Newsletter.
