Village Events


  1. 18th May 10 a.m. Park Lane car park
    Village Walk (a short drive away)
    Village Walk: Saturday 18th May at 10.00am, starting from the car park at the end of Park Lane, just north of the A29/A27 roundabout just west of Arundel. The important extra detail that did not make it into the Newsletter is that we aim to finish the walk in time to head to the Spur pub just up the road from the end of the walk for a post -walk beer / lunch, for those that would like to. Directions: take A27 west to first roundabout with A29, and take second exit north on A29 toward London. After a few yards turn left into Park lane, the car park is approx. 1/3mile on the left. If you are joining the walk or have any queries, please contact me on marion@mg-tucker.co.uk. Marion
