HAILSHAM RAMBLERS

Welcome to our site, enjoy your stay!

PROGRAMME OF WEDNESDAY WALKS 

We meet at the Cuckoo Trail Car Park off South Road at 9:15 for a 9:30 start.

All walkers should wear boots or stout shoes and bring something to drink.  It is recommended that members should carry their own first aid kit.  

Our shorter walks are usually about 2-3 miles in length, whilst the longer walks of 4 - 6 miles can involve negotiating steep inclines and stiles.

Although walking is one of the safest activities, we expect walkers to behave responsibly and to comply with any instructions or advice given by our walk leaders.

 The grid reference is the walk starting point. Please inform the walk leader if you intend to meet the group at the start of the walk instead of meeting at the Cuckoo Trail Car Park off South Road, as changes may have been made.

Our Membership Secretary Joan Guile may be contacted on 01323 449256.
