Image of the Walking Group

2018

These are co-operative, self-help walking groups, with a member teaming up with other like minded members to offer to lead a walk of their choice. This is the best way to ensure our walking group remains a viable activity, and also provides a far wider range of options. The conveners are ready to suggest and help to plan walks with members. Thank you to all our leaders for this programme.
