Walking (Amblers Plus)

Meeting Details

Meeting DayThursday
Time10.00 am
Frequency4th Thursday a month

What we do

There are two separate Amblers Plus groups, walking in different locations, but with similar approaches. Amblers Plus groups do slightly longer walks with more height gained than the Amblers Groups.

Members may only join one of the two Amblers Plus Groups. (to allow for our large number of enthusiastic amblers). However, a member can belong to one Amblers group AND one Amblers Plus group.



Co-ordinators: Nigel Toye  & Julie Waddington

Monthly – 4th Thursday (except Dec)

Thanks to all who have led walks in 2016.

I am looking for people who have been walking with us for a while now and not led a walk to offer to lead a walk in the next year. January is still open.

A reminder that Amblers Plus walks are on the 4th Thursday each month, 5.5 - 6.5 miles long and go up to heights of about 1000 feet.
