About the group

We are a very friendly group who walk for about an hour each week followed by coffee. Most of our walks are on good paths for walking and we do not do hills.

Strollers

Already this year (2017) strollers have had some very varied walks.   We braved the elements in February and had a lovely walk along the canal at Camphill, Milton Keynes.  This was followed by a very welcome cuppa at the Community Café at Camphill.   Another good walk was around Fringford on another very cold February day.   One of our members arranged for the village hall to be open where there was an interesting exhibition of Fringford and Flora Thompson.

The picture shows a walk at the end of April looking at the bluebells in Hazelborough Forest which this year are absolutely stunning.

 Strollers had many other interesting walks in 2017 and were able to walk almost every week in spite of some inclement weather.  We went to several new areas; Turweston airfield;  Kings Sutton;  Marsh Gibbon; Woburn; St James Lake Brackley; walk and quiz in Winslow together with several others.  Our coffee stops at the end of the walk still remain the most popular with some being longer than the actual walk!

Our summer picnic at Rushmere Country Park in June was good fun and in December we had a excellent lunch at the Buckingham Golf Club attended by 34 of our members.   Unfortunately I still have a waiting list so unable to take any more on at present.
