Horsham Riverside Walk 2

HORSHAM RIVERSIDE WALK

Disabled Ramblers were contacted several months ago by a representative of Horsham County Council regarding the opening of a new walk round Horsham – Horsham Riverside Walk – and we were asked if we would like to attend.  Consequently, Val Rawlings and Bob McLellan travelled to Horsham for the opening of the walk on Saturday 26th July to represent DR.  There were 150 walkers and US on our scooters.  It was very well organised, and we could all have a red baseball cap to wear, this lent a very festive air to the column of walkers as you may see from the photos.  Much of the walk follows courses of the River Arun and Horn Brook, a tributary of the Arun.  Much of it is through lovely meadows and woods but there is also quite a lot of suburbia as well.  The walk was 15 miles long  and to our relief our scooters just made it.  It would be too long for one of our rambles but within the walk there are probably two separate rambles to be had and we have made some valuable contacts and hope to put a ramble on in the area before too long.  Hopefully, this will enable some of our members nearer London and surround counties to attend.  Everyone was very friendly and interested in DR, quite a few leaflets were handed out when the opportunity arose.  The organisers of the walk are very keen for us to go up and do a ramble – so watch this space!!!
