Walking and Talking 2016


ouzel-valley-park-river-mainThe walking group is a good opportunity for those who like walking to also meet other members of the St Mary’s community as we definitely like talking!

The walks are mostly 5-6 miles starting at 10am, taking about 2 hours. We usually carry a flask for a coffee break and have a drink at a pub at the end for those who want.

You will need to wear walking boots, bring a drink and a snack and wet weather gear or even, maybe, suncream and a hat!

One or two of us are willing to reconnoiter and lead walks but would welcome suggestions or for other people to take us on their favourite walks. Most walks are the 3rd Saturday in each month.
