Fresh air, exercise and beer – sign up for the Ale Amble


Longfield Community Hospice’s Ale Amble event takes place at Stroud Brewery on Saturday, February 26th from 11am-3 pm.

Starting and finishing at Stroud Brewery, the Amble will follow a scenic four-mile circular walk, with pit stops for a tipple and warm welcome at two pubs along the way. The route takes in the majestic hills of the Heavens surrounding the parishes of Thrupp and Lypiatt.

Walkers will get a hero’s welcome when they get back to the brewery with a free pint (or soft drink for under 18s) on offer and the chance to catch a Six Nations rugby match on the big screen.

Boasting an airy entertaining space, exterior balcony and a spacious outside seating area with direct canal access, Stroud Brewery is the perfect venue for a Covid-friendly event, with room to enjoy drinks outside.

“It’s the perfect opportunity to boost your physical and mental wellbeing with some fresh air and exercise.
