South Downs Way Walk 1985

Over the Spring Bank Hal day weekend, 7 walkers completed the 50 miles between Arundel Cathedral and Exceat Bridge via Upper Beeding and Lewes. About £500 has been pledged in aid of the mission run by Fr Robert Brett, an A&B priest working on the Kenyan coast. Extra money should be sent to Mr D. O’Hara


SIZE 10 BOOTS Pat Olivier has a pair of boats which have broken him in! Anyone interested in acquiring them, contact him at Crawley


Lindisfarne crosses

No prizes to anyone, since nobody guessed what the centre pieces were. In fact, they were armatures from electric motors. Of course!
