Linton Walkers

Be aware that the Coronavirus has scuppered all our plans for the present .. we will start walking again as soon as we can, so watch this space ..

 

Linton has an active walking group that meets every week, almost throughout the year

On each Thursday morning at 11am there is a weekly walk. In addition, we have a full programme of evening walks, each Tuesday evening.

On the first Sunday of every month throughout the year, we run a somewhat longer monthly walk of between 6-8 miles or so which starts at 11.00 am and involves a half way stop at a suitable pub or village. for these we usually go a little further afield but they will typically be within a 30 minute drive of Linton.

In addition to the weekly and monthly walks, we also organise the annual Linton Parish Boundary Walk. This takes place on Rogation Sunday, which in 2020 is on 17th May. Please support this walk – it is a long-standing Linton tradition, which we are working hard to keep going.

We also have a Summer Outing.. once a year we head off to somewhere exotic!

Finally, we have an annual Walkers dinner in a local restaurant or pub..

All of our walks involve a donation of £1 per head, in aid of the Friends of Linton Church and similar local worthy causes. In 2018 we raised £1,408 – all at £1 per walk – and were able to donate money to various charities including the Friends of Linton Church, to the Church itself, to Buttercups Goat Sanctuary, and to the Friends of Boxley Church (in memory of Jenetta Cassidi), amongst other beneficiaries.

Reggie, the goat the Linton Walkers are Guardians of. He has a brother, Ronnie…

The really wonderful thing about these walks is how many good things they do, all at once:

– they get us out of doors into the fresh air and contribute to a healthy lifestyle
– they show us how lucky we are to live in such a beautiful part of the world. The views across the Weald from Linton are fabulous!
– they show us the ins and outs of our local footpaths, fields and beauty spots – places you never knew were there, perhaps only a mile from your own home..
– there is a strong social element to the walks. Numbers vary from week to week, but we are a friendly group and there is always someone to talk to, or not as you choose.. often we end up in a pub, but at least we will have earned our drink!
Why not give it a try? Contact David or Jerry - or just turn up to any walk.
