It was Isabel who organized the walk and party but sadly was called away to look after a sick child. However as all the hard work had been done, we managed to have a thoroughly good walk followed by a splendid party. Marian had collected an impressive collection of raffle prizes, the big prize going to a local doctor and the second prize, a huge hamper went to one of our newer members. It was a good turnout with 19 walkers and 25 for lunch, the walk being just over 4 miles and not too hilly. Photo thanks to Marian and Allan
We had a long climb up to the top of the Downs above Graffham, then walked along The Southdowns Way and admired some Belted Galloways before descending to The Unicorn for some well-earned food. Returning to Graffham Church along paths at the base of the hill was a lot easier. The walk was 5.7 miles with 820ft altitude gained.
Weatherwise a brilliant morning, cold but with a clear blue sky. The temperature barely rose above freezing, but the sun did its very best. We walked through woods and farmland and many walkers found the route very stile-ish, which wasn't meant to be a compliment! Apart from the stiles, it was very pleasant and we ended up in The Swan for a well earned lunch. The walk was about 5.1/2 miles with an altitude gain of 380 feet.
