During the Spring & Summer months we have Wednesday evening short walks of approximately 4 to 5 miles with a 6.30pm. start.
All of our walks meet at the old "Civic Centre" car park DH3 3UA, (unless otherwise stated),up to 30 minutes prior, for meet & greet everyone and to make car sharing arrangements before heading off to the start.
This group has/does advocate the use of car sharing, as it reduces the number of cars on already overcrowded roads and reduces the amount of CO2 being pumped into our atmosphere. It also prevents numerous cars parking at the walk start and allows non-car owners to participate in the healthy activity of walking in the beautiful countryside. Passengers are requested to donate a nominal amount to the car drivers, towards fuel etc.
We try provide the opportunity people make new friends and improve your health whilst enjoying walks of a varied nature, We are free to try, and after 3 walks we are sure you will want to join us.
