2019 ANNUAL RIVERSIDE WALK

The next Annual Riverside Walk will take place on Saturday 6th July 2019.

As before the start is at 10.00 at Horsham Rugby Club, Hammerpond Road, RH13 6PJ and we shall be going again in a clockwise direction, calling first at Chesworth Farm, then onto Warnham Nature Reserve and back to the rugby club via Strawberry Fields Cafe at New House Farm.

A free mini bus will again be available to get people back from various points around the walk.

There will be a childrens’ competition during the morning (see below) and a certificate presented to everyone who completes the Walk at the rugby club by 5pm.

Registering for the Event can be done at horshamriversidewalk@gmail.com or by phoning 01403 269384. Registration will not only help us with numbers but will enable us to contact you, although you can opt-out of this.

Thanks for your previous support and we look forward to another great day for all to enjoy. Dogs are welcome, but not in Warnham Nature Reserve. A detour is shown on the map below for dog walkers.

More information will be announced shortly and maps and general information about the walk can be found on the main Riverside Walk Map and Info. page. The official leaflet describing the walk, with a map, can be obtained free from Horsham Library and Museum and other places.
