Saturday 28 April - Ye Olde George Inn, East Meon at 10.00am
The penultimate walk of the winter season had to be curtailed to around 90 minutes due to the footpaths being flooded, nevertheless 24 joined us for a walk from Portsdown Hill through the medieval village of Widley (the original site before it was forcibly moved to its present site in the 1860s). A pleasant lunch was then taken at the Red Lion in Southwick.
The last of the winter walks will take place on SATURDAY 28th APRIL but goes from THE VINE, HAMBLEDON, not East Meon as previously planned. The change of route is due to the poor condition of the footpaths around East Meon. The walk, from the village hall car park in Hambledon, will leave at the usual time of 10am, but please arrive earlier if you wish to pre-order from the lunch menu – details of the walk can be viewed here.
A reminder to keep TUESDAY EVENINGS free during the summer as 16 walks have been planned, the first being from the HARVEST HOME on 8th May starting at 7.30pm. Again details will be published later this month.
The next development proposal to affect our local area is likely to be an infrastructure project led by AQUIND Limited.
The concept, according to AQUIND, is that by connecting the French and UK grids both countries can balance supply and demand by reducing the risk of loss of power. It is estimated the Interconnector could become operational by 2022.
