We are a very friendly group of walkers who enjoy each other's company. Many of our members have been walking regularly with the group since its formation in 2015 and they are very welcoming to newcomers to the group. We have around 30 members and generally average 16-18 on each walk. By the end of 2019 we will have done around 60 walks in total. We are trying to walk in every parish in south Norfolk, Waveney and East Suffolk coastal area. Some members are walking through villages they have never seen before, other than by car, and this keeps interest alive on each walk.

We are very conscious of our environmental impact and to illustrate this we always try to share cars where possible. We regularly meet at Beccles Quay car park to share cars to the start of our walks. So, for example, if we have 16 people on a walk we might well travel in just four cars. This means that we often start walks from very small parking areas, if we wish.

We walk at a pace that everyone can cope with and this gives us a chance to explore the landscape, look out for flora and fauna and buildings of historical interest. At our pace there is plenty of time to socialise and enjoy ourselves.

About twice a year we finish our walk with a lunch in a local pub or restaurant.
