L&DR are back in action from 18th April.
We have had some good news from the Ramblers Association, that the Government rules allow organised group walks by clubs such as ours to resume from 29 March, which is a little earlier than we had previously been told. We are also exempt from the rules that limit numbers on gatherings. We will be publishing our programme of walks for May and June shortly. On the programme page you will see that we are offering a couple of walks in April, just to get us all back into the swing of it again. I hope to see you on one of these.
Liphook and District Ramblers is a friendly group of people who love walking together in the countryside. In Liphook, we are fortunate to live surrounded by many Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Sites of Special Scientific Interest. so are really spoiled for choice!
Sometimes, we have as many as four walks programmed in a week. There are short walks (4-5 miles) every Tuesday morning, usually starting from a pub, where walkers have the option of adjourning afterwards for a coffee or light lunch . On summer Wednesdays, there are short walks taking advantage of the longer evenings to explore local beauty spots. On Saturdays and Sundays, there is a varied programme of short and longer walks, typically 5-7 or 9-12 miles in length, although a few are longer.
Liphook is close to the boundary of three counties, Hampshire, Surrey and West Sussex, so we attract members from across county boundaries and explore the varied terrain of all three. The South Downs, Surrey’s lowland heath (now recognised as one of the world’s rarest habitats) and Hampshire’s beautiful rivers and villages all feature in our programme. If this sounds like your scene, you are welcome to come along on a few walks to find out if membership is for you.
