We are a lively, local, independent walking club, founded in 1953, based in the Arrow Valley, Worcestershire, with a membership of 107, mainly from The Redditch, Bromsgrove and South Birmingham areas

As well as 3 Sunday walks a month (2 from 7-10 miles and 1 from 5-6 miles) we also have a social programme. We have programmes for Tuesday walks and Morning Coffee/Teashop Walks.

We hold an evening meeting or other event once a month. Typically there will be 4 or 5 outside speakers a year (generally on countryside topics) and 7 or 8 home grown evening meetings or other events, which can include skittles nights, evening strolls to pubs, or perhaps a trip to a restaurant.

At least once a year we organise a long walking weekend in a scenic location, allied with HF Holidays.

In previous years we have completed several long distance footpaths such as the Worcestershire Way and the Wychavon Way, using coaches to get to beginnings and ends of stages. 

For 2016 we will be doing a couple of Coach Walks -  see the walking programme for up to date details as they become available

Visitors and potential members are most welcome to join us for 2 walks or other events with absolutely no obligation to join.


The annual subscription, which covers membership from the date of payment until 30th September next, is at present just £10.00 per person. There is also an entrance fee of £1.50 for monthly meetings (Includes Tea or Coffee and Biscuits). Fees are reviewed yearly at the AGM. The Treasurer is responsible for collecting the subscriptions.

A full printed programme is published four times a year covering events for the ensuing three months. Our programme is also regularly updated on this website. A copy may be obtained (without obligation) by providing your name and postal address  to:- Mary Moore

Subject: Car Sharing

Hello, I would like to join you on the walk tomorrow and would like to car share. As I don't know anyone else who is going it is difficult to arrange this to see if there is a place with someone for me to car share with. Thank you, Katherine
