Sunday 21st February 2010

Would anyone like to join me on a walk on Sunday 21st February. It will be the last chance for six weeks for my Mum to join me on a Sunday walk (she will be plastered after that).

I would suggest somewhere like Firle Beacon (not too muddy). If you want to join me post a comment with any suggestions where you would like to walk.

New Years Day Walk

Would any of my friends like to join me on a walk on New Years Day.

I have decided it will do my staff good after stuffing themselves silly over the Christmas period.

I would love to see you all. Time and venue (any suggestions please make a comment) to be decided nearer the time subject to weather.


Happy Christmas and a Woofy New Year.

Pooh Sticks Walk - Sunday 25 October

A sunny Sunday morning saw me meeting a new Meridian Mutt 'Tibor' at Pooh Car Park/500 acre wood.

Tibor and I hit it off immediately and were soon exploring the forest together with our staff trailing behind. Conditions, to say the least, were a bit muddy in places, as expected.

This is me and Tibor enjoying the view half round the walk. We walked through 500 acre wood, through Hartfield Village and back across Pooh Sticks Bridge.

Here we are on the bridge with our staff.
Tibor is a lovely boy, but did not appreciate me exploring on my own (bit bossy) and told me off when I came back.
We finished the 7 mile walk off with gravy biscuits and the staff had a cream tea and walnut & coffee cake at Duddeswell Tea Rooms.
Hope to see you all on the next walk.

Pooh Sticks Walk - Sunday 25 October

Meridian Mutt Poppy Benson would like to know who would like to join her and her staff on a walk in Ashdown Forest.
This circular walk is 7 miles long and we start in 100 acre wood, through the village of Hartfield, past A A Milne's House (Cotchford Farm) and then over Pooh Bridge and back to the car park.

Meet in 'Pooh Car Park' (free parking) which is off the B2026 south of Hartfield.
We will need to meet at 12:00 (clocks will have gone back so will get dark earlier).
It might be a bit muddy in places so dress accordingly.
Hopefully when we have finished The Duddeswell Tea Room will still be open for refreshment.
If you are coming please post a comment.
