The President's Walk . . .

The group marshalled for action

Another happy band of President's walkers shown here at Firle Beacon about to set off (or shilly-shally, in the words of leader for the day Karen Looker) to the top

Survivors from the first walks in 1994 and still striding out in 2016 are Chris Kinnear (disguised here as a simple French peasant) and Moira, and also lurking at the back Carole and former member Cameron Sharp

after 22 years

How do I look?

A last-minute check on my appearance – or enjoying the view from the summit – before setting off for well-earned refreshment at the Trevor Arms in Glyndebourne.
