Wednesday Walks - February - March, 2020
Our aim is to inform and entertain - join us on the first Wednesday of each month and we'll introduce you to places off the beaten track. All walks start at 11.00 am, finish by 1 pm and cost £12 per person.
You will be welcome to just turn up at the meeting point and pay on the day – if you would like details of the first couple of stops in case you might be running late, then please email the guide for that walk to let her know that you are intending to come and she will send you further information. firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com
