NORMAL PROGRAMME (RESUMING FROM SEPTEMBER 2021)
When and Where
We walk on the 1st Thursday and 3rd Tuesday of each month. The starting time is 10.00am from a car park - often a pub - and we return there for lunch. Walks are circular, taking about 2½ hours and covering about 5 miles. They are planned and led by members.
In the warmer months we do some longer more adventurous walks, listed below under the title *Special*.
Shorter monthly walks for Strollers are available on the 1st & 3rd Thursdays of each month, starting at 10.30am, lasting 1–1½ hours and covering 2 to 3 miles. Please see the separate Strollers group page for more details
Walk leaders volunteer to plan and lead a walk at planning meetings held in March and September or by directly contacting one of the Convenors.
Each Member is emailed a 6 monthly Programme with the starting location of each walk, a brief description and the Leader's name and contact details.

Please sign up for walks in advance, either at the Monthly Meeting or by phoning the Walk Leader, whose phone number is on the 6 monthly Walk Programme.
