In April we will be going to another new venue, the Greyhound near Midhurst. This country freehouse is set at the foot of the South Downs National Park on the A286 heading south towards Goodwood and Chichester. They pride themselves on providing good locally-sourced seasonal food from local suppliers.
A chance to blow away the winter cobwebs with a short scenic drive before lunch.
The starting point for this event will be Stooks Café, at Newbridge Nurseries, Broadbridge Heath, located on the A264 just off the A24 near Horsham.
We meet at 10am for tea/coffee and collect route instructions. No clever tulip routes or map references, just simple turn left turn right instructions.
We then follow a scenic route of about 1 to 1 ½ hrs max duration, arriving for lunch at the Sir Roger Tichborne Pub, Alfold Bars, which is about 20 mins from the start point. There will be a few fun clues to solve on the way.
Other than your lunch, the only cost will be a £1 per car donation to cover printing costs etc.
If you are interested in this event please email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive full details and joining instructions.
