|When:||Last Wednesday of the month at 10:00am|
|Notes:||UPDATE The Group has been active with walks in July and August. The photographs show members at their recent walk in Alresford. On this walk on the 26th August we had 12 members, having had 6 walking on the previous walk in July. We all felt very safe and we covered the Group Risk Assessment before commencing the walk on each occasion. We plan to walk again on the 30th September and hopefully it can then be a monthly routine from then onwards. Jane Makin led the walk in August and Juliet Stubbings in July.|

The Strollers is a long established group that meets monthly for a stroll of approximately 3 to 4 miles, finishing with lunch.
We choose a good pub/ lunch venue within half to three quarters of an hours drive from Petersfield for lunch. We are then able to park our cars there and can usually order our lunch prior to commencing our walk. We walk at an easy pace for about two hours for 3 to 4 miles, depending on the terrain. Most walkers stop for a snack or a meal in a social pub atmosphere.
We take it in turns to lead the monthly walk which is usually shared by two of the group which helps with walking out the route in the preceding month. During the winter months which can be very wet under foot a walk can be organised just using the pavement or hard surfaces for a walk around Petersfield or an adjacent town, a recent walk being round the Chichester Walls, which can be enjoyed despite inclement weather.
We are a very friendly group and our post Christmas stroll, which is shorter in length and time than normal walks we are joined by non walking partners and former strollers for a very convivial enjoyable meal.
