What we do:

As our 'Oot-n-Aboot' name implies, we are a group of folk who, in all the changing seasons, enjoy getting ‘oot’ in our boots into the surrounding glorious Cumbrian, Northumbrian and Border Scottish countryside. Most of our rambles are about 5 miles long, covered at a leisurely pace, moderately easy, well planned and researched for points of interest. They are all described in our published seasonal ‘Walking Programme’ sheet (including information about length, degree of gradiant, and type of terrain). Variety is the keynote … with walks exploring different areas, led by different leaders, and with the occasional opportunity for a slightly more energetic few to challenge themselves with a higher route to meet up at a pre-arranged point with the majority who’ve taken a lower route. We customarily stop for a picnic lunch around the halfway point, and end walks with a tearoom/café visit.

The health and wellbeing benefits of regularly walking a few miles in the fresh air, amidst beautiful scenery, in the fellowship of a group of friends, are considerable. So if you feel this type of activity might be for you, that it might well enhance your retirement experience … or you just need more information, please don't hesitate to contact me (Phil Little) using the Members Portal on Beacon
