This is a Meetup for people from all walks of life to meet and make new friends whilst enjoying the fabulous local scenery and walking at a comfortable pace. The majority of the group are 40 plus but there are no limits or restrictions. Our aim is to walk at approximately 3 miles an hour, enjoying a mix of walks, which will vary from challenging to a bit easier. For those who have not walked with a group before, it is important you feel confident with your mobility and fitness, as we are not able to assess people before we start. If you are in any doubt please contact your GP before joining the group. We reserve the right to exclude at any time if you are not of adequate fitness. Dogs are not permitted on any of our walks. Sensible walking boots or shoes should be worn and appropriate clothing for the weather expected on the day. We aim to stop for breaks so it's always a good idea to have a snack with you and essential to carry enough water as hydration is extremely important. Each walk will display the start location and time, distance and expected duration. As a very friendly group we usually go to a local pub or tea shop for a chat and a chance to get to know everyone. It is essential that every new member has a clear face photo on their application for the safety and benefit of everyone, and you may be refused if it is not clear who you are. We accept no liability or responsibility for safety on these walks, each member joins on the understanding they are responsible for their own safety. We are not qualified leaders or walkers, or able to offer first aid support, and therefore can offer no assurances. Walking can carry risks, especially across open fields and uneven terrain, and each walk is undertaken with full acceptance of these conditions by each member. A charge of £2 per walk is made to cover the costs of hosting the Meetup site and other costs such as maps and petrol costs for recces, but as this is a non profit group, any remaining funds will be used for a social event at the organising committee's discretion.
