Our Diary for CLUB EVENTS

OAKLEAFE GROUP PROGRAMMES

PLEASE NOTE : From September into at least early November 2019 : ALL Club events, with the exception of the Caterham U3A events on a Monday morning, are being suspended for the short term ~ whilst Nigel recovers from a Cruciate Ligament (knee sprain) injury that requires enforced REST. Update late October ~ improving, but not fully there as yet!

In the briefing scripts for our events we offer LOCATIONstats for our meeting/parking points, and at times for other places. Included under this section will be the NEAREST postcode (not very precise in most cases); the Ordnance Survey grid reference (usually in TQ or TV 6-figure format AND 10-figure format ~ the latter being more precise); AND the latest what3words 3-metre international grid format. The latter is very precise, can be used from mobile phones, from home computers to check and print in advance and in most cases can now transfer into satnav systems…or in some cases ( i.e. late-model vehicles ) is already included in some way on the inbuilt satnav sytems. To find out more about the origins of this innovative system ~ which is already being used by emergency services, some couriers and more : what3word ~ how it all began (link for youtube.com)

NOTICE : We now NO LONGER plan separate Surrey Weekend events since the start of 2019.  Surrey members for WEEKEND WALKING have been invited to join our Weekend Rambling Group , which now includes all those from Sussex (West & East) and the west of Kent. This is a single, new Database ~ “WEEKEND RAMBLERS 2019/20”. 

This group will offer some activities in the countryside accessible readily from the Tandridge District and further to the west from Redhill/Reigate, as well as the west of Kent, West Sussex and throughout East Sussex.  Walking events will vary between Saturday afternoons, Sunday afternoons and our regular series of Summer Sunday Daywalks.

Our DAYWALK SERIES ~ the REVISED Dates for 2019 follow : Our overall PLAN for this year had been to follow much of the river in the Rother Valley in East Sussex from Hurst Green near Roberstbridge, eastwards towards the Kent borders. We were then intending to continue beside the Royal Military Canal BUT new revised plans below to stay in East Sussex and having walked east from Hurst Green to Iden, now, instead for the third and fourth events to head west from Hurst Green (for logistic reasons and time available on Sundays) :

From June to August we have now completed three sections already in or around the Rother Valley to IDEN to the north-north-east of Rye; and back to Stonegate Station … . In September we will continue heading WEST from Stonegate Station to finish at Five Ashes north of Heathfield.
