                                                                     WALKING GROUP

 

The group meets twice a month, for a healthy walk in the Oxfordshire countryside. In order to get a variety of views, members are encouraged to select and lead walks. Where possible, they finish with a visit to a local pub for well-deserved refreshments. Walking boots are always recommended.

 

Number of Members - 21

 

Meeting Dates: The second and fourth Friday of every month

 

Contact Person – Mary Chait - smchait@gmail.com

 

The Walking Group had their last walk for the year on 24th November 2023, when twelve members walked along the towpath, finishing with a lovely lunch at the Plough in Wolvercote.
