Our Walks Programme

It may be wise to contact the walk leader before proceeding to the starting point as walks may be changed at short notice in the event of bad weather or poor road conditions. Please contact the leader if you require transport or further information. The committee would like to remind all walkers to observe the pace set by the leader which will suit the ability of the group on the day. Please carry sufficient food and drink and a small first aid kit if possible. Would members willing to receive their walks programme by email please forward your name to Steve Musgrove. This is a cost-cutting exercise suggested from central office.
