What we're about
All our day walks should be easily accessible for Manchester, Sheffield, East Midlands, West Midlands, West Yorkshire and many with good rail links even from London and the South.
We now also offer many low budget weekends away which get great feedback and often fill super fast. We hope you'll join in with these as well.
Unlike some other Meetup walking groups we make no charge for attending our day walks but charge just £12 annually for being a member of the group to cover our Meetup fees, Civil Liability Insurance which we feel is a must and other expenses. YOU MUST PAY THIS TO TAKE PART BUT ARE NOT FORCED TO DO SO UNTIL EITHER YOUR THIRD WALK WITH US OR IF MORE THAN 3 MONTHS HAS ELAPSED AFTER YOUR JOINING DATE AND YOU WANT TO CONTINUE TAKING PART.
Payments are held by Peak Activities and Leisure Limited a company registered in the UK and funds dispensed as required ensuring complete transparency of any financial dealings. No-one takes any income for leading walks for the group although certain group and personal expenses are paid out.
If you have joined today or have done so recently and haven't yet paid your first annual membership dues of £12 you can do so directly in the old Desktop version of Meetup by clicking the link in the Membership dues box on the left of our home screen. On the new Desktop version click the Members link to get access to this.
This option is not visible on the mobile or tablet versions but you can use the link following to achieve the same result. You do not need a Paypal account to make this link work just select "Pay with debit or credit card" if not.

There is also an option to take out Life Membership for a one off payment of £35 which means no further subscription payments as long as you continue to participate in a minimum of 2 walks per annum.

Alternately you can click one of the links below which create a REDUCED recurring subscription of £10 per annum to the group which can be cancelled at any time. This is in fact how most members manage their membership subscription to the group.

If you don't want to make this small contribution to our essential operating costs then regrettably you can't continue to be a member of our group beyond your initial 2 walk/3 month trial period.
There are lots of walking dates to choose from so come and join the fun very soon.
