The Walkers group meet (during BST on the second Monday and) on the fourth Wednesday of each month at 10.00am at SWF Village Hall car park.
Members can join the group at any time providing they are willing to take a turn in leading a walk. This is fundamental to the success of the group's schedule of walks and ensures that all dates in the schedule are filled. Members are free to swap dates with others if necessary.
The group will be continuing with a programme of walks for 2022 which you can see below. There are dates where we need leaders. Please contact Lesley if you are able to do so.

|Dates for your Diary|
|Mon Aug 8th||Next up is a walk on Monday 8th August led by David Green.|
He has proposed to return to Benfleet Downs. He has checked it out again and even with a minor ankle problem, he reckons it’s still a pleasant route, with the path passing through grassland, wildflowers, shrubberies and pasture, undulating slightly in some places. The gradients are OK providing you have sensible walking shoes and perhaps a pole or two if you need them, for uneven ground here & there.
The walk is about 3.5 miles and roughly 1 ¾hrs with a rest stop halfway, where the river views are superb. Start & finish at The Hoy and Helmet pub SS7 1NA, which has a pub garden and a nice lunch menu.
So, meet at 10.00 in SWF Village Hall car park for car sharing. Forecast is for normal summer temperatures on Monday and there should be a nice breeze coming off the estuary.
|Wed Aug 24th||Richard Bradshaw & Steve Heading - TBA|
|Wed Sep 28th||Advance notice of a change to our 2022 programme: The London Walk booked for Monday 12th September has been moved to Wednesday 28th September. (There was no leader for that day anyway.)|
This is because the turnout for Monday walks has been so low this year, that I dare not risk the London Walk on a Monday, as minimum numbers are required.
Apologies for the inconvenience but I hope you will understand.
Please make a note of the new date and let me know if you would like to be added to the list for this walk. The walk will be in the Bloomsbury area at a cost of £10 p/p. More details to follow nearer the time
|Mon Oct 10th||Carole & Ian Robinson - TBA|
|Wed Oct 26th||TBA|
