Throughout the Year
Just Strollin’
As the name implies, this group enjoys strolling in the countryside and seeing far more (when we are not chatting) than from a car window.   Often ending near a pub (just right for lunch for those who wish to refuel !), the walks are around five miles and may include stiles and footbridges.
To find out details of the next planned walk, please contact Ann and Paul White on 01963 220411 or email
