Last updated 16 January 2007

This new walking group started on 29 June 2006 and is already well on its way to meeting its aims of helping people recover from mental and physical illness in a friendly, sociable atmosphere.

The group meet at The Ironville Parish Church, Casson Street, Ironville, every Thursday afternoon at 1:30pm. Walks range from 2 miles to 3.5 miles and are led by first aid trained walk leaders and always go, regardless of weather.
