For those who just want a gentle stroll in the open air with some company at the weekend. Please note that we will only meet if the weather is fine, so please check beforehand if the walk is going ahead.
Saturday walks will usually start from Killacourt or the Heron Centre meeting at 10:30am. Maybe we will catch a bus to somewhere and walk from there or the walks can be kept local. We will generally finish off in a cafe or pub for refreshments. Unless it is a special trip, if not starting from Killacourt the venue will usually be decided a few days before and emails or texts sent to those people who have indicated that they are interested. Keep an eye on the diary dates below.
