Walks

Linda Harrison, who organises the Guided Health Walks starting from Faversham Library every Wednesday as well as U3A walks, has kindly agreed to lead walks for Faversham Footpaths Group too.  Members, their family and friends and those thinking of joining the Group are all welcome to take part.  There is no charge.

Our next walk will be on Sunday 15 September,  meeting at 10.00am outside the Guildhall.  The walk will be led on this occasion by Paul Fowls and will include a stop at St Peter’s Church, Oare, which will be holding a flower festival and where it may be possible to buy tea and cakes. The walk will be about 5 miles in length/two and a half to three hours, including the stop at the church.

Our previous walk 

Our previous walk took place on Sunday 11 August.  15 walkers plus one dog enjoyed a good ramble around Bysing Wood and the Gunpowder Works.  Some photos are below:
