Isobel led us up past Lavington Stud Farm before heading North towards Upper Norwood and a stop for refreshments. Popple Hill wasn't really a hill at all, so easily mastered. The walk encountered several feeder streams that eventually joined the River Rother and wooden bridges were all in place and easily negotiable, although a few stiles exercised our joints at times. Some lovely Sussex countryside and more importantly, close to The White Horse where a special Christmas lunch awaited our arrival. A huge pile of raffle prizes, many of which had been kindly donated, had been beautifully presented on a corner table by the indefatigable Marian. After an excellent meal, the raffle took place and the main prize was won by Isabel. Fourteen prizes later, many walkers were clutching their own Christmas windfall. Special thanks to Marian for the raffle, Barbara and Mary for organizing the meal and Isabel for sorting out the walk, which was about 4 miles.
