Our next event will be a walk, probably in April 2019 and probably somewhere in Gloucestershire. Details wil be sent to all on our mailing list when the venue has been decided!

During our visit to the Mermaid Inn in the Peak District in May of 2018 it was unanimously decided that we should return there for our 2020 get-together, so it’s been booked!  

The group normally meets up once a year, alternating between going on a walk somewhere within reasonable distance of Cheltenham and spending a few days at a bunkhouse, large holiday home, or similar accomodation further afield.  If you were a member of the group (but are not on our mailing list) and wish to attend one of these 'reunion' get togethers, please use the 'Contact Us' form to get further details.
