WOW is all about single, widowed, divorced or separated people meeting up, making new friends and enjoying what the Great British countryside has to offer.

Have you ever driven past a village sign post, or footpath sign and wondered where it leads to? WOW's walks are a voyage of discovery, visiting new places and enjoying what our famous British pubs have to offer.

Our walks are usually in and around West Oxfordshire, but we do travel into the surrounding Counties on occasions, so I do try to encourage car sharing where possible. If you a car driver and willing to offer lifts or need one, just put up a note on the appropriate walk when you RSVP.

If you wish to come along and just give us a try out, then you are more than welcome to join in with Andrew and the leaders for some wonderful walking.

When you have RSVPed for a walk and then decide not to come before the date of the walk then please go back to the RSVP and click No to take your name off the list, this will prevent you getting a no show against your name.
As of Jan 1st 2014 you will be allowed 2 no shows against your name if you then have a 3rd you will be removed from the group and not able to return for 6 months.

What is a no show---- you put your name down for a walk then on the day decide your not going and you don't tell the leader of the walk before the start time, this is known as a no show.

All you need to do to prevent this is look on my profile and get my number put it on your phone and send me a TEXT message on the day and before the start time, I cant receive calls on my phone and due to the fact my hearing is bad hence the reason for TEXT.

This group does not have members insurance so if you have a medical problem please take out your own insurance to cover you on the walks, and please inform the leader of the walk before the start if you could be affected by the problem whilst walking.

There is also a WOW group in Gloucestershire, started in 2009 it is a fast growing group and is run by Robert, to see the walks and events....WOW GLOUCESTERSHIRE
This note is really for people who are new to Meetup and have concerns over privacy on the internet.

Profile name
As Google and other search engines trawl the Meetup pages regularly, having a profile of your full name will mean that the Meetup group pages you are a member of will turn up quite high on the search results for anyone using your full name as a search term.

As a result, you will see most members either use their first name, or their first name with the first letter of their surname where there are a number of people with the same profile name.

To change your profile name:
Use the "Account" option at the very top of the Meetup page and then click on "Edit"
option next to your name and change it there.

Dogs are welcome on the walks but owners must put them on their lead when asked to do so.

It is very easy, and very welcome, to send and receive Greetings in a group. However, be aware that the Greeting will get posted on the Activity section on the groups home page which everyone can see. Therefore, if you need to exchange information that you don't want to be seen by others other then by the intended party, such as when sending mobile phone numbers, then use the "Send email" option that you will find a little way down below the picture on someone's profile.

There is a fee of £2 per walk which goes toward paying for the running of this group and the setting up of each walk, all members should pay this.If you are a first time walker then you get the first walk with me free and as organizer I even pay if another person is leading.

If you agree to these rules then you are welcome to join us.

We look forward to seeing you
