Saunters restarted May 2021 but were suspended from July until September, during the Holiday Season. Subject to Government Covid rules, the walks are ad hoc, when the weather is fine. Notification of walks will therefore be by email, possibly at short notice. Masks may be necessary at certain points.
If you wish to participate or lead a walk, please email the Group Leader.
This is a small group of people who just fancy a stroll in the open air in good company. The walks are not normally very long but we take a long time doing them because we stop a lot to look at things and take photos. The length of the walk will be decided according to the participants’ abilities, the state of the tide and what is going on in or around Newquay. Sometimes it may be a bus ride away, so bring your bus pass in case we need to bus there or back (or both), and wear shoes suitable for beach or rocky cliff walks.
We generally finish off in a cafe or pub for refreshments, or we may stop en route.
Please check whether the walk is still going ahead if wet or hot weather is forecast: keep an eye on the calendar page for details of whether the walk has been cancelled or the venue has been changed. Contact the Group Leader the day before or between 8:00am - 9:30am on the day if you need further details.
Previous strolls have included: gentle rock pool rambles across the beaches at low tide; bus rides to St Agnes, Padstow, Perranporth, Fowey for a stroll around.
Longer walks have been: to South Fistral and back via Towan Headland; to Pentire Headland and back; to Porth Island and back; a circular walk via Porth and Newquay Orchard; to the Gannel and on to Trenance Gardens; several sections of the SWCP: the SWCP from Perranporth to St Agnes was a toughie!
