Smisby WI Walks : Smisby Striders
Smisby Striders are the Smisby WI walking group, which was set up in 2011.
Members take it in turns to organise and lead the walks on the 2nd Thursday of each month., Each walk is on average about 4 miles in length and may range from 3 to 6 miles
The walk finishes with lunch! Members can just join in for the walk or the lunch, if they don't want to do both activities. Members are notified of each venue by email and are asked to reply if they are attending.
We meet at 10:15 am for a prompt 10.30 start.
Well behaved dogs welcome on lead.
Please wear appropriate footwear and clothing for the time of year.
Walking Dates are circulated to members by email, normally a week before the walk.
