I have been
considering setting up this walking group for some time, but over the last few weeks I have had quite a few
people asking me if we could run one, so here it is.
Once a month on a Sunday morning a
small group of us will get together to walk between 1 1/2 - 2 hours.
At the moment no one knows each other so we
will all be in the same boat, but please feel free to bring a friend or a family
The routes will be within the Calderdale area and
will be a mixture of different terrains.
I will make sure that the routes we go on are safe and
We will meet at 9.00am in a different location each
The cost of the session is just £5.00. You can book your
place and make payment by Paypal by clicking on the Paypal link below.
Our next walk will be on Sunday 30th November
meeting in the large car park in West Vale, Halifax.
