Walking – Sunday Mornings

Meeting Venue:  Various

Meeting Day/Time:  To be advised by email to group members


These are approximately 1 hour walks which will take place as and when announced on Sunday mornings. They take the form of a friendly, social walk-and-talk that concludes with an optional visit to a local café/bar for a coffee. 

The pace is basically set by those participating. Faster walkers lead at the front, slower walkers amble at the back. It is not a race.

Most of the walks are on good roads or tracks and are fairly flat.

Wear appropriate footwear and bring water when necessary.
