now part of Gillingham Walkers are Welcome
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.

One hour moderate walks on Mondays, starting in front of the Barn Surgery, Newbury
Two hour across country walks on the first Saturday of each month with varying start points (see below).

2017 GILLINGHAM WALKING FESTIVAL 2ND - 10TH SEPTEMBER
Programme now available. http://gillwalkersarewelcome.btck.co.uk/WalkingFestival
NEW LEADERS/BACK MARKERS NEEDED If anyone would like to help in the future by leading/back marking an occasional walk, do please contact Sheila or Penny. This doesn't need to be an onerous commitment, for example Monday leaders on average lead one walk a month and Saturday leaders two or three walks a year.
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.
