CORONAVIRUS UPDATE 18 March 2020
Unfortunately, we have had no choice but to suspend all our group walking and social activities for the foreseeable future in accordance with official advice and guidelines. It is possible that further restrictions will be imposed upon our daily lives so it could be some considerable time before we are able to recommence our usual activities.
However, walking as individuals in our lovely countryside is still possible and if you are out and about please stay safe and follow the advice about ‘social distancing’ by keeping 2 metres between yourself and others.
As soon as we are able we will get our group activities up and running again and will be posting details on this website and directly to our members.
If you have any queries please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
WHO ARE WE?
We are a lively, local, independent walking club, founded in 1953, based in the Arrow Valley, Worcestershire, with a membership of around 100, mainly from The Redditch, Bromsgrove and South Birmingham areas
Our walking programme comprises regular Sunday walks between 5 - 8 miles, Tuesday walks between 8 – 10 miles and monthly morning Coffee/Teashop walks. We also undertake longer distance walks during the summer months and in previous years we have completed several long distance footpaths such as the Worcestershire Way, The Wychavon Way, The North Worcestershire Path, and the Shropshire Way.
Once a year we organise a long walking weekend in a scenic location, allied with HF Holidays, together with a couple of day coach trips.
Our social programme includes a number of evening meetings or other events throughout the year. Typically there will be 2 or 3 outside speakers a year (generally on countryside topics) and 7 or 8 home grown evening meetings or other events, which can include skittles nights, quizzes, treasure hunts or perhaps a trip to a restaurant. We also run regular daytime Discovery visits to interesting attractions, some of which are not usually open to the general public.
Visitors and potential members are most welcome to join us for 2 walks or other events with absolutely no obligation to join.
The annual subscription, which covers membership from the date of payment until 30th September next, is at present just £10.00 per person.
The Treasurer is responsible for collecting the subscriptions.
A printed programme is published covering most events for the ensuing year and full details can be found on the Calendar page of this website which is regularly updated. A copy of the programme may be obtained (without obligation) by providing your name and email address to email@example.com
