GGU Social Walking Group 1

GGU Social walking group is starting in April with one walk per month across a range of different areas and terrain.

We welcome novice walkers as well as experts and hope to encourage more leaders to have the confidence to take our young girls out walking and experience the lovely scenery on our doorstep!

Each walk will be led by a qualified walking leader - details of each walk are in the programme.
