Walk 28 - Sunday Social Stroll Around Our Trees
DATE: Sunday 11 June 2023
START LOCATION: Car Park, Heath Road, Petersfield (beside Little School Nursery)
DISTANCE: 1-2 miles
DURATION: 1 hour 30 mins
Would you like to fill that quiet downtime between 2 pm & 3 pm on a Sunday afternoon? Need encouragement to go out for a walk? Not fit but enjoy walking and would love some company along the way? Well, this gentle walk and talk around town with the Social Strollers will help you get started and provide a cuppa at the end.
We will meet at the carpark on Heath Road, just next to the Nursery, and after walking around the Heath we will finish this part of the tour at the Avenue. We can then stroll up through the town, perhaps using our new knowledge to identify trees on the way, to finish finally at the Hub by the station, where refreshments await.
The Social Strollers are a wellness walking group set up by the Hills to Harbour Community Rail Partnership. The group is for people who are not hikers but enjoy going out for a stroll in the fresh air with company on a Sunday afternoon. HHCRP works with the local community to promote the use of sustainable travel. They bring the railway to the community and the community to the railway. On their website and at their tourist hub at Petersfield Railway station they have a number of walks and cycle rides that can all be enjoyed using public transport.
