Hastings Rambling Club

THE recent hot weather has not had any notable effect on rambles, although anyone walking in these very warm conditions should ensure they are suitably attired and well stocked with water based liquids.

The club has now got a confirmed date for its House of Commons trip, being Friday, November 1. Any members interested in this number-restricted outing are requested to register same (details in the last newsletter) as a matter of urgency.

On Sunday, July 14 members enjoyed a special walk and tour of the ‘Sound Mirrors’ near New Romney, which played an important early-warning role during the Second World War.

Upcoming walks include Cranbrook (July 28), approx nine miles to include a picnic lunch; Goudhurst (August 4) approx six miles; Wittersham (August 11) approx five miles. Looking further ahead in August and September the diary includes walks at Winchelsea, Lamberhurst, Sedlescombe, Selmeston, Brightling, and Crowhurst. A day tour and walk through Windsor Great Park is being planned for Spring 2014.

Membership currently costs £7 per year and new members are always welcome. There is also the chance to try a walk out without commitment for a token fee 50p. For more details contact the secretary on Hastings 421146.
