The Strollers walking group is for men and women who want a gentle walk. The distance is no more than about 2½ miles on level 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 lunch breaks. This is optional as it is not always possible to stay, but most of us do and we have found some very nice eating places - as well as the not so good.

The Strollers meet once a fortnight on a Friday morning ( alternate Fridays with the Striders and Stragglers ) and all the walks are decided at the beginning of the term. If you are less able and would prefer an easier walk then try the Stragglers Group. For the 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.
