This 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.
SATURDAY START TIMES - The Group has decided to revert to a 2.00 p.m. start time for Saturday walks during the summer.
GILLINGHAM WALKING FESTIVAL 2015 - Dates will be 5th to 13th September inclusive.
WANTED - Evening walking companions for a fulltime worker who can't join our Monday walks. If anyone is interested, please contact Sheila or Penny.
PAWS IN THE PARK, WIMBORNE ST GILES - SATURDAY 18TH JULY 2015. See "Other Walking Info".
The group currently organises two types of regular walks (see Calendar) :

Two hour across country walks on the first Saturday of each month with varying start points (see below).
(The group hopes to recommence the Thursday weekly gentle half hour walks in the foreseeable future.)

The walks organised by the Balsam Centre in Wincanton may well appeal to Gillingham walkers. Have a look at their website and programme by following this link.
In addition to regular walks, we also have an active social section and most Springs we walk in Duncliffe Wood, hoping to see the bluebells.
