Walking is a great way to get out and meet new people while improving your health and wellbeing. We walk in all weathers, all year... smiling, talking and enjoying each others company.

We offer over 60 walks, (mostly weekly) across Buckinghamshire. Our trained volunteer walk leaders and backmarkers are there to help you walk at your own pace, with no need to worry about being left behind, lost or feeling left out. However, please try and book the level of walk you feel you can do.

All new walkers are welcome whether you are fit and active, haven't exercised in a long time, or have been advised to join by a doctor. 

So, come and join us!
