Weekly Walking Group

Every Wednesday and Friday morning

These walks have now been reinstated! A walk departs from the Kent and Canterbury hospital gate at 9.30 am (sharp) returning about 10.30 am. Weather permitting, we walk through the orchards and fields, but in winter more frequently on the roads. All are welcome, just turn up and go. We walk at a moderate pace. Sturdy footwear advised.
