History of the Walking Group

Thanks to Ray Ward who started the group almost 10 years ago, and to he and David Bodman who have organised so many walks over the years.

We continue to meet once a month for walks which are always followed by a fabulous pub lunch. Walks vary, usually between 4 – 7 miles, and we pace ourselves to suit the slowest walker, with time to enjoy the views. New members are always welcome!
