The Strollers meet once a fortnight on a Friday morning (alternating with the Striders and Stragglers – these groups walk on the same Friday), see below for the current programme accessed through ‘The Walk List’.
The Strollers walking group is for men and women who want a steady walk. The distance is usually between 2.5 to 3 miles on mainly flat terrain, but occasionally there may be an incline which each person tackles at a pace that suits them. We have a range of walks in different locations which include getting ourselves out into the countryside and the sea shore. There are often 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 for people to stay, but most of us do, and we have found some very enjoyable eating places – those who do not come up to standard are not visited again!!
All the walks are decided prior to the next programme of walks. There are three of these programmes a year; Winter/Spring, Summer and Autumn. The group is involved in the decision making with group members volunteering to lead a walk, if they feel able.
