What we're about

This group is designed for people around 40-60 years old who live in West Berks and would like to socialise for lunches, dinners and go walking through our beautiful countryside to shed a few pounds added after dining out at some our great restaurants and pubs. Some of the events will just be dining, some just walking and some walking followed by a pub lunch.

The Plus? Well that is all the other fun events that we attend such as concerts, theatre, trips out and of course events suggested by YOU, the members.

Hermitage Meander

The Fox inn

This lovely walk of just over 5 miles leaves Hermitage to visit the hamlet of Oare with it's pretty church and then heads back into Hermitage passing the cottage where D.H.Lawrence lived during WW1. The walk then leaves the village to cross farmland and woodland and includes the hill fort known as Grimsbury Castle before heading back into the village. This is a repeat of a walk we did back in September 2013. THERE WILL BE A £1 FEE PER PERSON FOR THIS WALK

Sunday Lunch in Hermitage

After the walk we can head into the Fox for lunch. Sample menus can be found at: http://www.hermitage-fox.co.uk/Menus.html
