FOOTPATHS GROUP: On Sunday June 3, 20 of us met by The Laughing Fish pub at Isfield and explored the low-lying landscape of the upper Ouse valley. The sun shone as we followed the River Uck, one of its main tributary streams for a short while and made our way through many beautiful meadows of almost waist-high wild flowers, including some purple orchids. One complete field was white with daisies. The footpath led us through some of the immaculately-kept grounds of East Sussex National Golf Club. Some of these footpaths can be extremely muddy in winter, but today there was no problem. We had previously reported to ESCC that one stile was rotten and the step up to a wooden bridge was too high to reach easily. We were delighted to discover that this work had been done which made a big difference to us. When we returned to Isfield, nine of us stopped for a drink and meal. The walk was led by Jeanette and Margaret.
