February Rambling - 2022

18th-20th February 2022

This weekend event, which we organise for Society members who are keen hill walkers, will be based in the Strettons, in the heart of Lone Pine country.

• Our FRIDAY evening meal will be in Church Stretton and our Saturday evening meal and Sunday lunch will be in Little Stretton.

• SATURDAY – we will be doing a challenging all day walk, involving a return to Clun and Offa’s Dyke, in our pursuit of Grey Walls and its secret.

• SUNDAY – our programme will involve a half-day circular route, ascending to the top of the Long Mynd and back down, followed by Sunday lunch.

More details, including how to register for the event, will be posted here soon. There will be a limit of 24 for this event.

We don’t organise accommodation for participants and, if you are interested in joining this weekend, we advise you to research and provisionally book available accommodation in the area now, emailing your early interest to


2022 Annual Gathering

22th-24th April 2022

Update on East Sussex Annual Gathering 2022: The postponed 2020 Gathering in East Sussex has been, as previously advised, rearranged for the weekend of the 22nd – 24th April 2022 with the venue still being The Royal Victoria Hotel at St Leonards-on-Sea, Hastings. Most of the programme will be similar but we are unable to firm some parts up until nearer the time, because of the uncertainties surrounding Covid-19 arrangements. The 2nd Malcolm Saville Society Literary Conference was scheduled to take place on Friday 17th April 2020 but this will no longer be taking place in 2022.

Those members who booked for the 2020 Gathering, and who recently confirmed their desire to attend in 2022, need do nothing further at this stage.

The 2020 event was oversubscribed, but some of those who were allocated a place are, for various reasons, no longer attending next year. Although we have a maximum number for the Gathering, we do now have a limited number of places available. Those members who wish to apply for one of these places, will need to complete our Registration Form, please clickhere. At this stage no monies should be sent by anyone – i.e. members already booked and those wishing to apply for one of the available places. A further communication will be sent out later this year, when the final details are known, and payments will then be taken
