Eastleigh Ramblers are invited to walk the Jurassic Coast from Studland Bay to Durdle Door. The walks will be over 3 days and each walk will be between 9-11 miles over fairly hilly terrane. The walks will all be linear using either buses or car sharing to complete the walks. All the walks will be based from Swanage so it is proposed that the walkers organise accommodation for themselves for the period, in or close to Swanage. We would also recommend that accommodation be reserved early as this is the Bank Holiday and the best accommodation will get booked up fairly quickly.

For further details or to confirm that you would like to join the walk, please email martinleearmstrong@gmail.com  by 12 November 2017.

A deposit of £40 is required on booking (£4 extra if you pay by Credit Card) and the balance is payable by 12 August 2018. You will need to quote the tour number AC8009 and provide details of your next of kin. Sixteen Eastleigh Ramblers have booked to go so far - 21 seats booked and 23 available on the coach.

RIGHTS OF WAY PROBLEMS IN THE BOROUGH OF EASTLEIGH

FOOTPATH SURVEYS

Hampshire County Council have an on-line reporting system for reporting problems on rights of way REPORT A PROBLEM ON A RIGHT OF WAY ON-LINE . In order to ensure that these reported problems are genuine and to provide a report back to the County Council on what is needed to be done to rectify the problem the Hampshire Area of the Ramblers has agreed to survey every reported problem in every parish. Whilst this will involve a lot of volunteer time it will mean the County Council’s staff time can be spent resolving current problems. The Eastleigh Ramblers thanks to Cyril, Bob and Richard have completed a survey of Bishopstoke, Allbrook and Botley and are currently working in Bursledon. The problems that need resolving are below. If you see that they have been fixed let us know by emailing eastleighrambler@aol.com
