Convenor:Teresa Connor  Tel: 07811 971051
Day/Time: Various days and times. See published list below.

This new walking group has been formed to accommodate those who are:- 
(1)not available on Fridays when the Short Walks and Long Walks take place.
(2)who are perhaps not as fit or as mobile as they might be or
(3)who want a short walk conducted at a leisurely pace and are more interested in fresh air and companionship than clocking up miles.

All are welcome BUT  It is imperative that you call in to the office at 12 Nelson Street before you attend a walk for the first time. Some forms need to be completed, otherwise you will not be able to participate.

Started in February 2019.

Please take note that people who have not been taking regular exercise are advised to start slowly and gradually build up to 30 minutes per day. For that reason, the first few walks will be quite short so that I can assess your various abilities before planning more outings. New routes are currently under review.

Please Note that walks will be cancelled during inclement weather.
