We are a social group of walkers who enjoy the countryside primarily on Sundays with a few summer midweek outings. Our walks are generally 4 - 7 miles and rated at an easy to moderate level - the detail is spelled out in each meetup description. Our walks are moderately paced. We welcome everyone who considers themselves to be single and pride ourselves in offering a warm welcome to all newbies. Well behaved dogs are welcome but are the responsibility of their owners. You are advised to bring a bottle of water, appropriate clothing and footwear for the conditions. Bring a snack or picnic for the midpoint stop - we do also dally occasionally to allow for photographs or to admire the view. Afterwards we tend to adjourn to a local hostelry for a drink and/or food which is entirely optional.
The emphasis is on having a pleasant day out, visiting interesting and beautiful places, meeting people and making friends rather than conquering summits or getting from A to B as quickly as possible. WOW, have a wonderful day out, meet new friends, share a joke and a laugh.
We ask for a small donation of £2 towards the website Fees and the Organisers expenses in planning the Walk, each time that you walk with us. The walk leader will always have recently walked over the route.
When you book on a Walk and are unable to attend, please change your RSVP on the site to free the place for another Walker or send the walk leader a text message on the day. The walk will proceed shortly after the published time and will not wait unless a message is received that you are in the vicinity when we will wait for a few minutes.
Most of our Walkers are in the age range of 40/50/60's.
