Bugbrooke Strollers

Walk With The Strollers

The Strollers are  a leisurely walking group catering for older walkers who wish to enjoy a stroll through the countryside on a weekly basis.

They meet each Thursday at 10am and each walk takes about 2 hours.  About once a month the walk is in the Parish of Bugbrooke but on other occasions a short car journey is taken to surrounding villages with the walk starting and finishing from the agreed parking place. 

There is no fee for joining the group and the age range tends to be over 50's.  On the last Thursday of each month a pub is chosen as the venue for lunch and the walk starts and finishes from that point.

About 20 people usually take part in the walks, although there are some 50 people who have joined the group at their convenience since the group was formed in 1998.

A programme setting out walks for the 2 months in advance is produced 6 times each year.  This is published in the Link and on village notice boards.

The group is open to anyone wishing to enjoy a sociable and leisurely stroll each week.

The Strollers meet on Thursdays at 10.00.am. for a variety of walks (see latest programme below) which last for about two hours and proceed at a leisurely pace with plenty of time for a chat and a breather.

If you would like to join in, please just turn up. Meeting places are shown in the programme.
