We are an over sixties walking club based in Lichfield, Staffordshire. We organise three walks every Wednesday, varying in duration and exertion from a four mile amble to a nine mile hike. We walk locally and also further afield in the Derbyshire Peak District, Leicestershire and Shropshire. Coach trips are also occasionally arranged.

To minimise our carbon footprint (and fuel costs) we meet in Lichfield to share cars to the start points of the walks.

If you would like to keep fit, walking with a friendly group please contact our membership secretary using the e mail link or by phone 01543 419054.

You will need walking boots, a thermos flask and just maybe a waterproof.
