Ale Amble returns – the perfect day out for beer and rugby fans


Longfield Community Hospice is organising the perfect day out for beer and rugby fans, with its popular Ale Amble returning to Stroud Brewery on 11 March from 11am-3pm.

Starting and finishing at Stroud’s iconic brewery in Brimscombe, the Amble will follow a scenic four-mile circular walk, with pit stops for a tipple at two pubs along the way. The route takes in the majestic hills of the Heavens surrounding the parishes of Thrupp and Lypiatt. It’s the perfect opportunity to enjoy some fresh air and exercise with family and friends.

Walkers will be welcomed back at the brewery with a free pint (or soft drink for under-18s) before catching up with a Six Nations rugby match on the big screen. Food will also be available on the premises.

Kirsty Murray, Community and Events Officer at Longfield is organising the event, said: “We’re delighted to bring back this popular event, which offers something for everyone. Please register and encourage family and friends to join in too! Your donations or sponsorship will really make a difference to the care we provide patients with life-limiting conditions and their families across Gloucestershire.”

Longfield is a Community Hospice based in Minchinhampton. As well as providing Hospice at Home care, Longfield also offers help and support to patients, families and carers through a range of Wellbeing services at the hospice.

To sign up for the event, visit www.longfield.org.uk/event/ale-amble

An early bird discount will apply to all registrations made before 30 January. Registration will be £15 for an adult or £10 for a child and you can choose to make a donation or raise sponsorship. You will also receive a Longfield t-shirt to wear proudly on the day!
