Hi. I started this group for anyone who, like me, wanted to go for a walk in a bit of scenery at a weekend but wanted a walk that isn't demanding and doesn't take up a large chunk of the day. I hope through this group I can offer walks in and around the city of Leicester that are open to anyone of any age. Pets and children are welcome (NB we often go to a pub around midday after the walk) and some of the walks are wheel friendly. Sometimes we'll be very close to the city centre and sometimes we'll be a bit further out, more than likely within a 10 mile radius of the city centre. If where we are going is not accessible by public transport we tend to be able to give each other lifts. Just say if you need a lift!
Each walk will be about a 50min circuit that will have been previously walked through in preparation and helpful information will be given such as parking facilities, and public transport directions. No special walking gear or footwear should be needed. A lot of the walks will be on proper paths.
I like to encourage different members of the group to lead some of the walks as and when people would like to lead one but there is no pressure with this. We are always grateful for ideas of places we could go, or for volunteers to lead one of the walks. We tend to walk every other Saturday at 10:30am and then head for a nearby pub or cafe for a pint/pepsi/coffee. People tend to disperse around 1:00pm. Some people eat lunch at the pub, others wait until they get home afterwards.
There's no charge for this group. I just want to encourage peope to get out out, discover some nice little spots around Leicester and to meet other people in a non-threatening way...
Please RSVP if you intend to come so we know to wait for you before setting off. If the weather is bad we try to have a plan B in place by way of somewhere to meet for a drink close to the starting point but if the weather looks bad please check the webpage before heading out. If it seems we will have to cancel the walk altogether we will announce it on the webpage by 8:30am. Look forward to walking with you...
