The Walkie Talkies

Weekly Thursday - 10:30am

We walk every Thursday morning starting at 10.30am alternating approximately between shorter (4-6 miles) and longer (6-9 miles).

Meeting venues are arranged in advance and posted on our website. All walks are led by walking members, volunteering to lead on an occasional basis with help and support from others if required.

If you would like to try this fun and beneficial form of exercise then some suitable hiking footwear, outerwear, a packed lunch and your enthusiasm are all that are required. Although we like to think of these outings as healthy we also consider it to be a social event and an optional visit to a local hostelry is usually arranged to restore our drained energy.
