Welcome to Welly Walking. We are a friendly informal group, determined to resist being couch-potatoes & to get moving. Every Monday evening we will be walking from The Dolphin in Waterloo Road at 7pm.
We’re not planning a quick fix; we will be building our fitness levels over the weeks and months ahead & want to help others do the same. We will walk further & hopefully faster each week; aiming eventually to break into Scouts’ Pace or even a jog! But don’t panic all levels are welcome.
Our plan is to walk reasonably briskly around town during the cold and dark months and break out into the countryside on lighter summer evenings. Ambling will be positively discouraged which doesn’t mean we’re anti-social, rather we would rather feel we’ve earned a chat and perhaps a refreshing cuppa or drink afterwards. Walkers will be responsible for their own safety and will be expected to know how to cross roads by themselves and to wear appropriate clothing. Do come along and join us.
