What we're about


We are into walking, dining out, theatre, cinema, country pubs, barbecues, making friends and socialising. The group was called the Bournemouth Boghoppers 25 years ago when we took over from the original S.E. Dorset YHA Group. The nickname has stuck and has become our official title. We have no fixed age range but most of the members are in their forties, fifties & early sixties. We aim to have regular Sunday walks in the Purbecks, across Dorset and the New Forest. Please note that this group does not allow dogs on the walks. The walks are usually 7 to 10 miles. But we are not all about walking; we are very much a social group as well.

The price of membership is only £5 to cover costs and we do offer a two month period to try us before you join. You can pay your membership fee via paypal.co.uk to the following PayPal account: bournehoppers@gmail.com

If you aren’t a PayPal member you can use PayPal as a guest using a credit card. Please make sure you put your name in the comments box so the Treasurer knows who has paid. If you have not paid within the two months, your membership will time-out.
