Join OrthoEurope and the Limbless Association for a ramble in the New Forest, followed by a summer barbecue

The route is a 2 mile circular walk through the forest, so walkers can amble along at their own pace, or walk at speed, if they are feeling competitive. Along the route are memorial benches for those needing a well earned rest.
