Group name: Ipswich & District
This group is a part of Suffolk Area.
Our groups help local people enjoy walking and protect the places we all love to walk. Most groups organise regular walks led by local experts – a great way to get outside, make new friends and discover how walking boosts your health and happiness. You’re very welcome to try walking with us, or to get involved in looking after paths and green spaces and opening up new places to explore.
New walkers are always welcome to join any Ipswich Group walk, however please note the following points:
Meeting time - Please aim to arrive at the meeting point 10 minutes before the time given in the programme. This allows time for chatting and changing your footwear. The time given in the programme is when the party sets off, so please get there earlier.
Equipment - You won't need any special equipment for the majority of our walks. Strong shoes or boots and appropriate clothing for the weather conditions, e.g. waterproofs, are recommended. On a hot, sunny day, you may want to bring a sun-hat, sunglasses and sun cream! The main thing is to be aware of possible changes in the weather and bring appropriate protection.
What else will I need? - On day walks, bring a packed lunch if indicated on the programme by (F) or (D) for a drink. On morning walks there is usually a short â€œapple stopâ€ approximately half way round. (WCs) indicates that there are public toilets at the start of the walk.
Can I bring my dog(s)? â€“ Participants may bring dogs on group walks, but please walk at the rear and keep them on a SHORT (not extending) lead at all times. Be aware that there may be stiles on many walks, which some dogs could find difficult.
