Details of Group Activities:
This group has vacancies and are now actively looking to recruit new members. We organise a regular, twice monthly programme of morning, country walks in the beautiful Surrey Countryside. Walks are typically 5-6½ miles long, take between 2-3 hours to complete and generally follow established paths. We endeavour to keep up a reasonable walking pace, some walks are hilly and may include a few stiles.
Walking in the open countryside is a fantastic, safe way of keeping fit, so the Group was desperate to get started again once the Covid lockdown was relaxed. Initially we were forced to ban car sharing and split walks into multiple sub-groups of six but since June we have been able to gradually relax restrictions whilst still ensuring reasonable safe distancing and Covid safety.
In recent months we have arranged local walks on Ashtead Common, Princes Coverts, Langley Vale Centenary Wood, Headley and Norbury Park in addition to North Downs walks taking in Colley and Buckland Hills, Wotton Hatch, Friday Street, Abinger, East Clandon, West Hanger, Peaslake, Holmbury St Mary and Holmbury Hill.
Members are encouraged to lead walks once or twice a year, less onerous than it sounds as there is a wealth of fantastic, pre-prepared walks published by Fancy Free, various books plus the walking apps and there is always someone available in the Group to guide and advise.
All you need to join are walking boots, waterproofs, adequate warm clothing and a drink.
