GROUP – Hikers (5-8 miles)

Group Leader: Brenda Sibley

The group meets at least one Wednesday each month. The week may vary.


About our Group

After a break of 15 months due to Covid, the Hikers re-started their walks with a change of Group Leader. Steve ably led the group for several years but circumstances meant he was not able to lead the group.

The Hikers group have continued to enjoy a hike between 5 and 8 miles each month for some time now. 

We are continuing the group with one walk per month, i.e., 2nd Wednesday and there is still the hope that we will be able to increase again to two Wednesdays per month if enough group members continue to add walks to the programme.


Leader’s Report

Since we re-started, we have mainly walked in Nottinghamshire, but some in Derbyshire have been organised. As the days lengthen and the weather improves, we are hoping to do more walks in Derbyshire.

The weather has been good on most of the walks so far, but that cannot be guaranteed!

The group enjoyed a Christmas walk and lunch at the Centre in December 22 and a similar activity has been booked for the end of 2023.

We look forward to many more walks and invite members to plan a route and let the group leader know so it can be put in the ‘Diary’. (Brenda)

See the Diary of Events for more information about what is planned.
