We organise about 60 leisurely paced 4 to 6 mile walks on weekdays and weekends throughout
the year, usually within a 10-15 miles radius of the centre of Wokingham. We also
arrange some London walks and others further afield. We have an active programme
of monthly meetings with relevant and entertaining speakers, social events, suppers,
Christmas lunch, charity fundraising quizzes and organise an annual UK walking holiday.
The Group was formed to increase opportunities for all like minded adults to gain
safe access to the countryside and promote friendship amongst members by providing
a regular programme of walks and related activities. No one will ever know the pleasure
that walking and talking within a group can bring until it has been experienced.

The Group was formed in September 1999 under the auspices of Wokingham District Countryside
Services by amalgamating the Women's Walking Group and the Over 50's Mixed Walking
Group. After two years the Group formed its own management committee and all walks
are member devised and led.

Currently about 125 members with around 20-30 attending most walks. The Group offers
a very warm welcome to anyone who would like to join us for fresh air, exercise and
companionship. However some prefer to walk quietly and safely within the group whilst
enjoying the natural world. Annual membership is £6 (six pounds).
