This is a social walking weekend for adults in Girlguiding. Would you like to explore some Lake District hills, fells and mountains, with friendly people to go out with? This is the weekend for you! This is the first social walking weekend we have offered for a long time in Girlguiding Midlands, so please come and join us. There will be a mix of day walks on offer for you to join in with, from lower level walks with a teashop included, to longer walks up bigger hills and mountains. Or you may like to do a walk of your own choice. We hope you will be able to get some log book walks in if you are already involved in the walking scheme, or find out about the scheme, or simply come and enjoy walking with new people. More information and booking form on the Girlguiding Midlands website link below.

Introducing the Shamblers!

Following on from the success of the Shropshire Way Challenge a group of five Shropshire Guiding Volunteers have decided to carry on walking and have adopted the name “Shamblers” (Shropshire Guiding Ramblers!). We aim to walk twice a month, usually in Shropshire and hope to have a programme of circular walks over the coming year.  

Any member of Girlguiding Shropshire is welcome to join us on any of the walks. Dates (but not necessarily the routes) are planned a month in advance. Walks are often 9+km long starting at the agreed meeting point at 10a.m. and often adjourning to somewhere nearby for tea and cake at the end.  We are an informal, flexible group so if you fancy some fresh air, exercise, lovely scenery and friendly company do join us.

The next walk dates are:

29th Feb, 6th & 24th March, 14th & 25th April 2024.

 Email Jo Revell Walking Adviser on jorevell1@icloud.com or text/phone 07834673204 if you’d like to come.
