Walks start at 11am (and finish about 1pm) so please be there early if you want to change into your walking boots etc, park on road so as not to clog up the pub car park and wear suitable clothes and footwear. The group cannot accept responsibility for any injuries or damage so please take care when walking. Most of all enjoy yourself!
Walks can only take place if we have a leader/s so please volunteer to show everyone your favourite walk/pub.

I shall lead a walk on the above date starting 11.00 am at St Michael’s Church, School Rd, Amberley, Arundel BN18 9NA and finishing there. I led this walk in 2017. Only street parking is available I am afraid. Do share cars if you can.We shall go up Amberley Down along South Downs Way. It will be hilly but no more challenging than the recent Bignor Hill Walk which people managed without a problem. I measured the distance last time as 3.88 miles. However on Monday we shall make a short extension and do slightly over 4 miles. For a lot of the time we shall follow a path which on a clear day provides excellent views to the left and right. We can make a short stop at some ancient burial mounds before proceeding to a trig point and then turn back to retrace our path. The extension I referred to above is to let everybody see some wild flowers which impressed me last Monday. If the weather holds it should be a nice day out. The peace could be disturbed by the odd aircraft doing aerobatics over the river Arun. It can be noisy but entertainment of a sort if the pilot loops the loop. But he/she will be a long way from us and pose no danger. In any case he/she soon should soon run low on fuel or get tired and head back to Goodwood or somewhere.
There was no mud on the terrain last Monday but if it rains heavily between now and next Monday things could change. Please be prepared with separate clean footwear to use at the lunch to follow. Dogs should be on a lead. We will come to several fields with sheep and very accessible to dogs.
I have booked a lunch table for 12 people at the Sportsman Inn, Crossgates, Amberley, Arundel BN18 9NR at 1.30 pm
This pub is well worth going to if nothing else for it’s superb location overlooking the Arun river valley. People should consider joining us for lunch even if they are not doing the walk.
Please advise me whether you would like to join the walk and/or lunch. If however you do want to come to lunch please study the attached menu and mention in your reply your pre-order – the manager says he’ll need pre-orders for a group our size. Also please copy Sophie at the Sportsman on firstname.lastname@example.org . IE both Sophie and I should see your pre-order.
In summary if you want to join us for walk and lunch or just lunch please email me ( email@example.com ) and Sophie with your pre-order. If, however you only want to join the walk you can email or text me (07876764096).
Hope to see you next Monday
