Peter Brown and other residents launched the revamped booklet of 7 Walks Around Walberton on Saturday.

Speaking ahead of the launch, Peter said: “We will walk round one of the walks, starting from Walberton Village Hall car park and will finish at The Holly Tree.”
Peter said the previous booklet was out of date and needed updating.

“The idea is for people living in Walberton to explore the wonderful countryside around them,” he explained.

“Many don’t get out at all and that’s a shame.
“Volunteers produced a booklet some 20 years ago but we ran out of copies. This is not a complete re-write but it is updated.

“The idea is to encourage people to get outside. Walberton is a lovely part of the world with lovely footpaths. We want people to enjoy living here.

“They are about to start building large housing estates in our parish. We are not happy about the housing but we have nothing against the people moving in so we want the booklet to be a welcoming for them so they have a chance to learn about the area. Hopefully they enjoy living in this lovely part of the world.”
