The Walking Goup commences in early May each year, walking on a Monday each week throughout the summer. The season then usually concludes with a final walk in early September followed by lunch.
Over the course of the summer most evenings have a turnout of 15-20 walkers, with each paying £1 per walk. At the conclusion of each season a cheque is presented to a charity chosen by the group.
New members of any age group will be made most welcome and are sure to find that there is great fellowship and social interaction within the group, especially when most Monday nights end up with a visit to a coffee shop!
