Walking Group 2
The group meets on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of each month in the Homebase Car Park, leaving promptly at 9.45 am
We are a small, friendly group of walkers who walk at a good pace whilst still enjoying the beautiful countryside. Hills and stiles are not (usually) a problem! Walks are generally 5 to 6 miles and are led by members.
We meet at Homebase and share cars to get to the starting point of the walks and sometimes stop off at a pub or café for refreshments on the way home.
When permitted our group did go walking again, keeping strictly to the law in groups of 6, and also following u3a guidelines. At this time this is not possible but the Group Leader has occasional phone conversations with the group.
Although we are a relatively small group our members have come up with an amazing range of different walks over the last year. Brief details are emailed to group members a few days before each walk.
What makes a walk memorable? Clearly (weather permitting) it is the vistas and features of the landscape, flora and fauna. I encountered a memorable description this year, “Saunter beneath the umbrageous trees” – how luxurious. But what makes it most memorable are your companions on the walk and they don’t come any finer than those in Walking Group 2. Why not risk it and come with us?
New members are always welcome. If you are interested in joining us please contact the Group leader using details shown in the Newsletter, or via the webmaster.
