Does anyone have a spare backpack they can bring tomorrow? We're a walker without one :)

Cheers,

Saturday 22 July 2017 - Pub Night (north Norwich)

After the blistering success of the last pub night (didn't expect ten people on a cold Friday night) I thought we'd have another one! I thought about going dancing and to the places young people go, but then I decided that sounded far too stressful, so I thought I'd take myself (and anyone else who ...

Re: Sunday 2 July : Legstretchers Walk

Hi Lucas,

A short walk would be ideal. We usually have a short walk of around 5 to 8 miles as an introduction to walking on the first Sunday of every month - and so it doesn't draw too many people away from Legstretchers, but there wasn't one organised for this month.

Cheers :)

Julian.

Sunday 2 July : Legstretchers Walk

Legstretchers (which is the area's new long distance walking group, heavily backed by Hike Norfolk!) has a walk on Sunday 2 July 2017 starting at 09:00. It's a bit of stroll at 22.75 miles I will admit, but a wonderful challenge! Everyone very welcome although I will strongly recommend only walkers ...

Friday 23 June 2017 : Little pub night

Hello!

There's a pub night this Friday (I know Fridays aren't ideal, but hopefully some people can still make it) at the King's Arms on Hall Road and beyond.

Everyone welcome!
