Walking -Original Longer Walks
The Original Walking Group meets on the first and third Thursdays of each month.
Where there is a fifth Thursday in the month a combined walk/visit to a place of interest usually takes place.
Walks commence at 10am unless otherwise specified and a programme is planned about 6 months in advance.
Members are encouraged to share transport and to pass on to the convenor an emergency phone number.
Members are responsible for ensuring that they are sufficiently fit and able to walk between 6 to 7 miles. Most walks take place in Lincolnshire but on occasions may cross into adjoining counties.
Equipment and walking attire needs to be fit for purpose, with particular regard to footwear.
Each member is expected to organise and plan at least one route a year and to check the route in advance including any potential hazards.
Most walks are circular, starting and returning to a local pub car park and finishing with lunch, which is optional and costs are met by individual members.
There is also the Walking - Five Mile Walks Group. And on May 20th the Neighbourhood Walking Challenge will take place.
