Kevin is a keen walker but also a firm believer in the health benefits of plant-based diets, having remedied his own health problems by simply changing the food he eats.

DATE: Wednesday 24 August 2022 TIME: 10.00 A Petersfield favourite with the town’s Ramblers.

You can't do this route too many times.
DATE: Wednesday 24 August 2022 TIME: 10.00 A glorious circular walk that combines beautiful (and rare) lowland heath, the imposing scarp slope of the Downs and rolling agricultural land in-between. What’s more, August is the best time to be out exploring our heaths, as the heather will be a blazing carpet of purple. From the car park at Iping Common, the route first heads across Mitchell’s Common to Minstead.
