All of our walks are presently suspended due to Covid 19.
It's our hope to restart our walking program in October (the winter walking then, should be fab, as long as everything works out ok).
Thanks for visiting, keep in touch.
The group is long established and completes regular walks and social events for people from Chester, Wrexham and surrounding areas. Walks are intended for people of all ages and abilities. The membership of the group is usually between 60-80 people and most walks are attended by about 10-12 people. We use Meetup as a way of contacting people who might like to join us. Unlike some other Meetups we are not a group of casual acquaintances but a community of people who aim to contribute to the aims of the group and get to know one another. We are especially keen to attract people who are willing to lead walks.
Walks are graded 1-3*; 1* are usually shorter not involving significant ascent whilst 3* are strenuous mountain walks. All walks take place in North Wales, Shropshire, Cheshire and the Peak District. The usual pattern is a walk on Sunday (occasionally Saturday) throughout the year with short evening walks in the summer. We encourage car sharing and there is usually a pub at the end of each walk.
It is not necessary to have any experience of walking although a reasonable level of fitness is required. You do not have to join initially but come along and see if it is for you. A membership fee of £10 is payable on joining then renewed annually in November. This is reduced by half from June. Membership provides insurance on walks as well as access to non-programme walks, social events and trips away. We have an AGM in May where issues facing the group are discussed and decided.
Over the years many lifelong friendships and relationships have resulted from participation in the group. One day we will try to find out how many children owe their existence to the group. Please note we cannot accommodate dogs or children on walks.
