Programme of activities

Throughout the year we undertake guided walks and visits, on the second Sunday of most months. All are welcome on the walks but for insurance reasons all participants must be members. Day membership of £1 per person is available on the day. Annual membership costs £5 per person or £8 for two people at the same address.

Some walks may be suitable for dogs, which must be on leads. Check with the organisers first.

Meetings are held in local halls on weekday evenings with speakers on topics of local interest.
