Members are welcome from the following catchment area of Bristol and Bath.
This group is for the people that love the outdoors, any activity that includes walking, weekend day walks, weekends away, and shorter pub walks on a Tuesday night. The aim is to create a friendly long term walking group of regular walkers, a typical walk distance, would be up to 8 miles but regularly 6 miles and 4 miles on Tuesday night evening walks. Activities will be on average once per month minimum and more where the calendar allows. It is my aim to make walks with a great twist to them, visits to areas of out standing beauty, or memorable places, even local history.
The group will initially appeal to the 40+ age group.
Events will change, as the group evolves to include social nights and any activity the membership, wants to explore.
Walking trips may include Walks with a theme, Photo Challenges Walks in and around the Bristol Bath area Walks outside the Bristol Bath Area Camping Trips Hostel, walking weekend trips Hotel, walk trips
