Walking in the Spotlight September 2019

Hello and welcome to this insight into what the Monday walkers get up to. We are a group of people who like to get outdoors and enjoy the beautiful surroundings where we live. We meet every Monday and walk in the local area mostly on the beautiful Chase. Most Mondays there are between 30 to 40 people walking and we see a lot of wild life, not from the walkers but the four-legged kind, we walk not just in Rugeley we go to Stafford, Cannock, Hednesford, Lichfield to name a few. We have a group leader who leads the walks. We don’t just walk on a Monday we also do evening walks too, which are shorter than a normal Monday and after the walk we have a meal. Every bank holiday we go a bit farther out to places such as Ilam, Curdworth, Sutton Park, we recently did what we called a bus pass walk, where we went by bus to Trentham and walked up to the monument and walked past the monkey forest into the shopping area of Trentham gardens and enjoyed a fish & chip lunch.   In July the committee paid for the hire of a coach, which the walkers were most grateful, and 45 of us went to Bewdley walked along the riverside to Highley then caught the steam train back and had 2 hours in Bewdley, then I think most of the group enjoyed Fish & Chips by the river as it was a sunny warm day.  So if you want to get out of the four walls come and enjoy the company of a great number of people who enjoy a leisurely walk no matter what the weather come along and enjoy yourselves.
