Today saw the annual walk that I began back in 2009, in memory of my Mum.
Each year a few of us gather in the early morning and take a hike, varying the route on each occasion. Unfortunately, the weather has not been overly kind in the last few years-so a 4am start was always going to be a risk.
We needn’t have worried. Today’s walk was met with perfect weather and a splendid sunrise which we all witnessed from Ditchling Beacon, an excellent vantage point.
Eight of us made the 11.5 mile walk stretched from the Beacon to the Shoreham Road just south of Upper Beeding. A bus ride back in to Hove saw a hearty breakfast at the Cliftonville Inn on George Street.
Annually we raise money for the Alzheimers Society, and this year will bring in over £500. A special thanks to the loyal sponsors of this event.
Twas a fine outing.
