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. Brief details are emailed to group members a few days before each walk so that members can decide whether it is suitable for them.

Our 2nd March walk of 5.5 miles was in the Dymock area starting at the church, where knitted daffodils were tied with string around posts near to the entrance. We then walked through beautiful undulating and sometimes wooded countryside. We came across a lonely tree in the middle of a field, ideal spot for a group photo with a full blue sky in the background. We did have to trudge through some muddy fields, so much that we all became two inches taller! Tried as we might to rid our boots of the sticky mud in the next grassy field, it was impossible. We needn't have bothered as many of the following fields were just as muddy. We did manage to see some daffodils in a wood. At the end of the walk some of us went into the church for a soup lunch together with a loaf of bread which was supplied at each table with a 'carving knife' some butter and a generous lump of cheese. Very nice. Cake was also on sale for a little extra cost. At 1pm there was entertainment. Two mature ladies sat side by side at a piano to play duets of several well know pieces . When they had finished, another lady sang some familiar songs. It was a lovely ending to a very pleasurable day.

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?
