A circular walk from Reigate

28 Jan 2018 | Surrey Group

You might have thought that this walk was going to be a repeat of familiar paths, but you would have been mistaken. Patrick had cleverly winkled out some unknown routes combined with some familiar scenes to make a very interesting day. After a couple of rather wet months we did encounter some slippery mud which resulted in some buttock encounters with the ground. The weather was kind to us, mild and dry. We saw lengthening catkins, snowdrops, flowering witch hazels and other signs of spring.

Returning to the cars everyone was in high spirits and 33 hungry souls tucked into the array of confectionary and hot beverages....

Epsom Downs walk 31 Dec 2017

31 Dec 2017 | Surrey Group

Kate, Pops and Mary lead the 40 strong group on a lovely walk today. Unbelievably they had managed to find a walk which the Surrey group had not walked before.

At the end end of the walk we had a fine selection of cakes and refreshments. Our thanks to all our generous marketeers and baking experts:-

Robert - Chocolate cake (only contained 1/3 kilo ...

Gomshall to Dorking, 22 Oct 2017

22 Oct 2017 | Surrey Group

Adrian led 22 (plus 4 dogs) of us on a lovely walk through varied countryside. After after the winds and rain from storm Brian yesterday I had been expecting a cloudy day but it was not to be, the sun shone for most of the day. The walk took us through a number of familiar places but together they formed an ingenious new route. The terrain was mainly undulating with one long climb onto the North Downs and as we know “hills mean views”.

At the end of the walk we had a positive cornucopia of delicious ...
