Jo Dunford writes, introducing the "Favourite Walks and Memories of Southampton HF Group", during her time as President (summer 2006), of what was, and is still is, 'Southampton's oldest walking group (probably)'.


"It gives me great pleasure to introduce HF members to "their book".  When the suggestion was made of collating a selection of rambles with their writer's memories was made, we thought it was a real challenge and and I'm delighted that the vision of Jean Watts and others has come to fruition.  This booklet is a worthy contribution to our 75th anniversary celebrations.  I'm particularly pleased that it ranges across the years, including contributions from those who can no longer walk with us but have been faithful leaders in the past.


"I have enjoyed reading the various  descriptions with their historic references, humerous anecdotes and the delight in the sheer beauty of so much of our landscape, and I hope you will too.


"Many thanks to the contributors and the editing committee of Jean Watts, Kate Foot and Michael Noyce.  Well done!"
