May 10th 2021

A week of all weathers has just past, with cold northern winds, heavy rains and finally warm sun and blue skies. Long may it last, I’m very ready for lots more!

We had a fabulous romp across field, forest and stream on Tuesday evening when Carole led us on Ashdown Forest. The far reaching views to the north were superb, the ancient beech trees and their low lying bows called us over to touch and wonder at them (see photo) and the sunset we witnessed as we did our stretches carefully masterminded by Carole’s strategic finishing time was a treat to behold.

Thanks to those who were booked on to Saturday morning’s walk for your flexibly in still being available when I shifted it to Sunday due to bad weather. The blue bells and other woodland flowers were a stunning show and took my breath away, again, as did their scent, also the scent of the wild garlic which was just starting to rise as the sun touched them. If you missed this wonderful, varied walk join us as we do it all again this coming Saturday.

It’s all about the bluebells at the moment, we’ll be seeing more of those shades of lilac and blue on our Wellbeing walk tomorrow at 9.30am. Come along for a relaxed wander through Highwoods and enjoy the birdsong and quiet of the woods too.

The June schedule is now live so get booking!

We a have a Camber Sands walk again on the 27th which I hope many of you will come to. A stretch across the hard flat sands of Camber with brunch to finish at Beryl’s café. This was extremely popular last year and I’m excited to finally be able to reschedule it. Details here:
