Our Joint Vice Presiodent, Chris Howard has taken up the challenge and written a book about the walks she creates for Surrey Life magazine every month. Walks for All Ages walks are free, short and tell a story about the County. Having volunteered with the Surrey Hills Society for 10 years, Chris has picked up a Surrey story or two over that time. The walks are accessible to all ages, interesting for children and have toilets and pubs or cafes available nearby.
In her working life Chris used to be the Town Centre Manager for Guildford, and is currently the Chairman of the County’s Tourist Board. This has given her a unique opportunity to get to know all sorts of interesting facts about the County, that she has now been able to record in this book.
The book was launched at the Surrey Hills AONB’s 60th anniversary celebration at Loseley Park on 26th June by Dame Penelope Keith (pictured above with Chris at the event).
You can order a book through our online shops, at a cost of £5.99 (+ £2.50 for package and postage). All proceeds from the book will be donated to the charity to assist in projects that protect, promote and enhance the Surrey Hills AONB!
