Want to get fit? Then why not join us on an enjoyable ramble?


If you enjoy walking or are thinking of taking it up, why not come along and give us a try?


We organise a programme of walks suitable for a range of abilities. In 2015 and the first half of 2016 we included a few shorter walks, suitable for people who hadn’t done a great deal of walking recently or at all. These generated quite a lot of interest, so in the programme for the second half of 2016 we have again included shorter walks on Sundays, again trying to give an alternative where the main walk is long or hard. There are also Friday evening pub walks in July and August. Check the ‘Latest Walks’ section on the left for further details – just click on each walk.


We also organise social events and short breaks away, and have just completed the Snowdonia trip, described below.

Working Party 20 Sep 2016

On Tuesday 20 September, our work group, consisting of Tony G, Tony B, Pete, Mac and Ed, with help and guidance from Nigel of Staffs County Council, carried out some useful small projects in and around Lichfield.

With secateurs, shears and chainsaw at the ready, the group firstly cleared an overgrown footpath just off Abnalls Lane in Lichfield. On the principle of many hands making light work, nettles and brambles were cut back entirely within half an hour.







The group then went off to Chorley, where they replaced the rather wobbly and awkward stile shown right.image2

 Photo right shows Nigel posing in his Stihl-style braces next to the new stile. That's three stiles in one picture! 











The group then put a handrail on a footbridge over a stream. Photo shows Tony B and Nigel making sure the new rail is on the level.

Both jobs were carried out within a couple of hours, testimony to the group's growing experience!

Watery Lane SmallOn 14th June, a party consisting of Tony, Mac, Peter and Phil assisted Nigel to repair a kissing gate off Watery Lane Lichfield, replacing the fencing next to the gate (the official name of which escapes me!) and nailing a split in the gate itself.

The party marks a new phase in our activities, since we now have official plates advertising our role in repairs. Thanks are due to Staffs County Council for providing these free of charge.
