Celebrate one year of walking in Sheffield

Have your say

A BAND of merry walkers are preparing to mark their first birthday with a big bash.

The Sheffield Wanderers Walking Group will raise a glass to a year of wandering at the Hillsborough Hotel, Sheffield on Friday, October 12.

Members meet every Sunday and take a countryside stroll of about eight miles, going at their own pace. It gives people the chance to enjoy exercise, scenery and company in a laid-back group environment.

A Wanderers spokesman said: “We do not walk at a fast pace, because we like to take in our surroundings and also because we’re not walking to a tight schedule or anything.”

The birthday celebration will feature a buffet, quiz and a beetle drive.

It costs £2 for a year’s membership to the Wanderers. Visit the website www.sheffieldwanderers.forumotion.co.uk to find out more.
