2013 WALKS PROGRAMME
It is 20 years since the Friday evening walks began, brainchild of the late Albert Shutt, then Chairman of the Aireborough Civic Society. His plan was to explore the Aireborough area, visiting places even local residents hadn’t been to, and ensuring footpaths were kept in use.
Unless stated the walks are normally between 3 and 4 miles in length. The pace is as fast as the slowest walker.
As the walks cover a variety of terrain, sturdy footwear is strongly advised, along with weatherproof clothing. Most of the walks involve gradients, hills and stiles.
If you have any questions about a particular walk please contact the walk leader at the telephone number given.
An end of season meal is arranged for Friday 6th December 2013 at Rawdon Golf Club. A meal will also be held in February 2014 when the walks programme for 2014 will be arranged.
