DATE: Saturday 7 January 2023. TIME 10.00 Whose bright idea was this 'Walk For All Seasons'?! There is nothing to see in January. Can we please fast forward to March! There is no denying it....January has a bit of an image problem. Low sun, short, cold days, nature in hibernation mode and the post-Christmas blues are not exactly major selling points. We can't even rely on a sprinkling of snow lifting our spirits anymore. But fear not January, help is at hand! This walk aims to prove that flashes of colour and life can still be found in the depth of winter.....if you know where to look. Some plants are even looking their most majestic at this time of year, so it would be such a shame to miss their great show. Why not join us for this winter warmer to discover some winter magic and help rekindle our love for January.
DATE: Tuesday 17 January 2023. TIME: 14.00 Come and join our local Heathlands Reunited rangers at Shortheath Common, Oakhanger to discover more about this traditional tree blessing ceremony, which also helps ring in the New Year. There will be a toast to nature and celebration of the way it changes through the seasons over the course of the year.
DATE: Sunday 22 January 2023. TIME 13.00 Come and discover Petersfield's Community Garden on this walk and enjoy watching & savouring their annual Wassailing ceremony in the orchard.
DATE: Thursday 26 January 2023. TIME: 10.00 We won’t be as rash as to promise you won’t get muddy on this walk, but the Greensand ridge north of Petersfield does offer walkers welcome relief under foot at this time of year.
