Pre-COVID-19, arrangements for the Wednesday B all-day group were as listed below.
The Wednesday B walk is around 6.5 to 8 miles long, starting at 10.15am and generally finishing around 14.30 to 15.00pm. There is a 10 minute stop mid morning for a refreshment/comfort break. The lunch stop is normally at a pub or you can bring a packed lunch which can sometimes be eaten in the pub garden providing a drink is purchased; otherwise there is an alternative place for packed lunches to be eaten. The walking speed is up to 2.5mph, giving time to take in the surrounding countryside and enjoy the views.
Currently, after consulting the members, there is usually an informal group walk each week (maximum size of 6 people including the leader). The distance and starting time can vary from the details above. Most walks are between 7 and 8.5 miles in length but occasionally shorter or a little longer. Start times have ranged from 09:15 to 10:45 am. Current policy is to take a packed lunch unless advised otherwise by the leader.
Details of the following week’s walk are circulated a week in advance and anyone wanting to walk must contact the leader beforehand to confirm their attendance.
The group secretaries can provide details of forthcoming walks to anyone interested. Please call either Sue Knowles (07928 312678) or Geoff Hale (0775 148 3715). Alternatively, email – firstname.lastname@example.org
