Walking Group (Stragglers)
  • Last Updated: 22 Jun 2018


Stragglers Pic

The Stragglers walking group is for men and women who want a gentle walk and can often start with a bus ride. The distance is no more than about 1½ miles on easy terrain - often with things of interest to look at - churches, old houses and even new interesting buildings. Our walks would not be complete without our optional lunch breaks at cafe's or local pubs.

The Stragglers meet once a fortnight on a Friday morning ( alternate Fridays with the Strollers ) and all the walks are decided at the beginning of the term. For longer walks see the Strollers Group or for more strenuous walks see the Striders Group.

If you enjoy a relaxing walk and having a chat with good company, do talk to me in the meeting or contact me for further info.
