Annual Poddle walk - Sunday June 2nd 2019
The Wey & Arun Canal Trust, which is working hard to restore 23 miles of navigable waterway linking the River Arun at Pallingham to the River Wey at Shalford, organises a sponsored walk each year. This is the Trust’s most important fundraising event and makes a vital contribution to pushing the restoration effort forward.
The walk will start at Bramley Village Hall, with lunch at Farley Green Church Hall. The route is planned to take in the new section at Birtley, along with Rooks Hill Farm, Albury and Blackheath. It is a great fundraiser for the Trust, as well as being good fun, so keep the date free and let friends and family know. More details to follow.
Who can do it? Almost anyone, with the exception of the very young, infirm and pushchairs as the walk covers stiles and some hills. Dogs are welcome especially if sponsored!

1. Register for the walk (see link above)
2. Complete the sponsorship form (download) and raise as much money as you can, or make a donation on the day – minimum £20 please (lunch is provided)
