Strolling 2

Strolling 2 Group

The Strolling 2 group is gradually building up its numbers for the short easier walks being provided for those Ramblers who are just finding their feet (so to speak).

There is, however, considerable difficulty in finding leaders, especially because a group of this nature, serving those at the ‘entry’ level of our walking, does not of itself have many walkers who have the skills or ability to lead.

So through this notice we are looking to encourage anyone with the interest and ability to lead some easy walks of up to 4 miles to come forward to help the group.

If you may be interested please contact me on 01768 890390 or through e-mail at thelmaallan@btinternet,com

Shorter 'Strolls'

Many people love the idea of walking but would not be able to manage a big or challenging walk to begin with.
A shorter walks programme (Eden Strollers), commenced on Wednesday 13th January 2016, described as ‘easy’ or ‘leisurely’ are now incorporated into the regular walks programme These walks offer something to a) keen walkers who don’t have time for a longer walk, b) to existing Ramblers members who find the current programme too challenging and c) to those walkers who have become fitter through health walks and are looking for a new challenge. The walks are:- led by a Ramblers member with a back marker, on a planned route with a clear start and end (usually Penrith Rugby Union Club car park), of no more than five miles, at a pace that is not too fast, on manageable terrain, run weekly on a Wednesday and, of course, friendly with a chance to socialise in a café or a pub at the end of the walk.
Penrith Ramblers' Chairman or Secretary will put you in touch with further information.
