Graffham Christmas walk 13th December 2017

The weather conspired to beat the walkers, with rain forecast for the morning and very cold conditions, snow having fallen locally only two days earlier. However, the lunch survived and the White Horse at Graffham played mine host to about 30 guests. The food was excellent and was followed by the Christmas Raffle, superbly organised once again by Marian. Lucky winners were Mary, Shirley, Tim, Jean, Mike, Kate, Pete, June, Barbara and Christine.  Thank you for the additional photos from Marian, Paul and Jane. Last but not least thanks to Peter for organising the venue and the food.

Marine Band Concert, Chichester Festival Theatre 6th December 2017

A very pleasant social evening in Chichester with a meal and then going to the Marine Band Concert in the Festival Hall. Very entertaining, with help from the Chichester Cathedral choir. Many thanks to Marian for organising the evening.

Henley Day/Morning Walk 6th December 2017

This was a day walk that we shortened to a morning walk. Weather was cold but not freezing and we had a few inclines (hills!) to warm up with early on the walk. Tree clearance and no leaves on the trees meant we had some excellent views towards Blackdown and Marley early on and once we had reached the ridge going towards Older Hill we had some excellent views over Titty Hill as far as the pylon on Butser Hill. Lunch was in the wonderful Duke of Cumberland Arms in Henley village where some of us took advantage of the half price/half size portions that are available. Thanks to Jane for additional photos. The walk was about 4.3/4 miles with about 740 feet gained.
