An informal group set up for those who wish to walk in the area of                                               Gillingham, Dorset         

Fresh Air      Friendship    Feel the Difference

The group is for anyone interested in walking in company around the Gillingham, Dorset area.  We welcome everyone who wants to walk, particularly if you have never done much walking or not walked recently.  We aim to provide enjoyable walks at a pace comfortable for all.  It's a chance to meet new people and improve your health too.
