mask, and not to share food or drink with other walkers. Remember – do not attend a walk if you have symptoms of Covid, but stay at home and book a test.

The walks cater for a variety of fitness levels and last from 30 minutes to 90 minutes. They are suitable for beginners, regular walkers or just those who would like to go for a scenic stroll with like-minded individuals.
