Walks

We normally walk every first Sunday in the month. Walks are around 6/8 miles in length, medium difficulty, always ending up with a Sunday meal. For those with a big appetite don't forget your butty for the half-way stop we always have! 

Some walking groups are expensive to join but we only charge £1 per walk to cover admin expenses. Any surplus is put into the social fund so the cost always returns to the members.

New members are welcome to the first walk FREE of charge. The £1 fee is charged from the second walk.

We try to maintain a 6-month schedule of walks.
