Rudgwick Preservation Society – Walks Programme, Summer 2018

RPS logo photo

That’s it for 2018! What a grand summer season it has been – very little rain, warm (or even hot) evenings, strong turnouts from our loyal followers and lots of new faces too. Thank you for your comradeship, sense of fun and conversations in the pub afterwards.

See you, and some new faces, in May next year. The programme will be in this space in about February, March at latest.

One of our main activities.

Every Tuesday evening, May to August 2018, at 7.00 pm. 

There is no charge. All are welcome.

Note: the last two walks in August start at 6.30 to get the best of daylight.

Please note: all participants walk at their own risk.

Dogs always welcome (to be on a lead on roads and near livestock). The average walk is 4 miles in 2 hours. These walks are friendly and fun, and often end in the pub. Just turn up and go (suitably clad of course)! We walk whatever the weather.
