Our members share a love of walking and the countryside. Many walks end at a pub or tea room where we can have a friendly chat. Walkers find their own way to the starting point, usually by car, and we encourage members to car share. There are also several coach trips, rail rambles and some using local bus routes. Occasionally challenge walks and national and local trails are organised by members/secretaries.
We have an active committee and each grade of walk has a walks secretary to put together a varied and interesting programme.
Members are encouraged to lead a walk after walking with the club for 12 months. Help is available from Walks’ Secretaries and other members. Help with map reading is covered by occasional walks teaching basic orienteering skills.
This is a very friendly club and we also like to meet for social events – an Annual Dinner, Ceilidh, President’s Day, Boxing Day Reviver, New Year Lunch and many more informal lunch meetings.
