Walking and Lunch Club
The group comprises around 35 members of whom just over half are very active and the remainder occasional walkers. Our purposes are : fellowship, fun and fitness ! We hold walks fortnightly and in a calendar year go out on 20 to 24 occasioins- we are very rarely rained off. Our walks average 2 hours duration (about 4 to 5 miles depending on the terrain and we limit our walking on roads; we travel largely within a 15 mile radius of Whitchurch. Most recently, we had a new innovation based on Chester 20 miles away. This consisted of a walk along the River Dee returning by a pleasure cruiser with on board refreshments. Most of the walkers 'retire' to a suitable hostelry, some deciding to take their main meal at lunchtime. We share cars for which reimbursement is payable at currently 30 pence a mile, divided by the number of people in the car. New members will find us a very welcoming group !!
