Walking

Social Walking Group


The group meets regularly on the first Tuesday of each month, weather permitting.

We aim to meet up at approximately 11:45 AM for a 12 PM start

This activity is weather dependent. If heavy rain, ice or snow is forecast, it may be postponed, so please check the website for updates.

It is a leisurely, friendly, no pressure walk via a different local route each month, details of which can be found under the Events menu.

The walks are approximately 3 hours in duration, and if possible we always try to stop at a cafe or somewhere to get a hot drink either at the end or somewhere on route.

It is also advised to bring refreshments in case there is no cafe on route.

If you take part in walks please be responsible for your own health needs. We aim to make the walks wheelchair accessible, but will advise if that is not the case.

The walks are not strenuous but it is important that you feel physically able to complete the walk.

The group is run by Marie Wastlund - one of the Diverse Social Project Managers.

If you'd like to be a walk leader please get in touch! We are looking for volunteers to help Marie or take on the running of this group. There can be a small reimbursement for this job!

If you require a support person or any medication, please remember to bring this with you.

Let the walk leaders know if you start feeling unwell on a walk.

At the start of the walk we will take a register, just for health and safety.
