A brief description of a typical meeting:
Members meet, arrange car-sharing and drive to the start of the walk. Group members take turns to plan and lead the walks of approximately 5 miles.
New members with little or no experience of this are assisted by other group members. At the end of the walk we generally have lunch in a pub. Every 6 months we have a planning meeting for the next 6 months. Once a year we go away for 4 days walking in England or Wales.
