Current walks

We are delighted that with the recent easing of Government restrictions, we are now walking together as a club. Our first walk took place on Wednesday 7 April.

Walks offered and confirmed by Leaders are listed below up to end June. As you will see there are two vacant dates awaiting a leader to come forward. Please continue to check the Website for up to date information. We look forward to completing the calendar and walking with you soon.
PLEASE ENSURE YOU BOOK IN WITH THE LEADER OF EACH WALK, AS SOME WILL BE SUBJECT TO RESTRICTED NUMBERS. THIS WILL BE AT THE LEADER’S DISCRETION WHO WILL ADVISE YOU.
