The Downs Benefice Summer Walks

19th to 24th August 2019

 

DON’T MISS OUT!

Put these dates into your diary and join us during our week
of walks this summer.

 

It is for all of the communities of Chilbolton, Crawley, Littleton, Sparsholt and Wherwell: all are welcome.

 

There will be six full-length walks of between 8.5 and 9.5 miles and also eight half-day walks of about 4 to 5 miles.
Two years ago, we had about 100 walkers who each walked on average 2.2 walks.

It is hoped that all five communities will support this initiative.
