Farndale and Friends Walking Group

A walking group has been set up to bring people together for a local walk and then chance for a cup of tea and chat afterward, generally at the Village Hall unless the walk is further afield.  Come along if you fancy it, everyone is welcome!   Please bring a picnic.  Dogs are welcome too.

The group is open to ideas of different days, times and lengths of walks as well as levels of difficulty. Please email Jo for more info or if you want to suggest anything.  Email –
