Walking Boots

Join our walking group that meets monthly on the third Saturday of the month. An opportunity to walk and talk together in the countryside.

At St James’s, we believe in nurturing not just our spiritual well-being, but also our connection with the natural world around us. That’s why we’d like to invite you to lace up your walking boots and join our vibrant walking group.

Connect with nature: There’s something truly magical about strolling through the great outdoors, surrounded by the rustling leaves, the gentle whisper of the wind, and the melodious songs of birds. Our walking group offers you the perfect opportunity to immerse yourself in the beauty of nature, to breathe in the fresh air, and to rediscover the wonders of creation.

Build lasting friendships: Walking side by side with fellow members of our community isn’t just about putting one foot in front of the other. It’s about sharing laughter, stories, and moments of quiet reflection.

Nourish your mental health: In today’s fast-paced world, it’s all too easy to feel overwhelmed and stressed. But amidst the hustle and bustle of everyday life, the simple act of walking can be a powerful antidote. It clears the mind, soothes the soul, and restores a sense of calm and balance.

Whether you’re a seasoned hiker or taking your first steps outdoors, Walking Boots welcomes you with open arms. So why not join us on this journey of discovery, friendship, and renewal? Together, let’s walk towards a brighter, healthier, and more connected future.

For more information and to get involved, please contact Rob. We can’t wait to walk with you.

Walking Boots the small print

The group works on the same basis as would a group of friends who go out walking together, inviting others to join them.

Everyone taking part does so at their own risk. SJP and the walk leaders assume no responsibility for anyone attending any Walking Boots event. They will not be held responsible for any accident, injury or loss occurring as a result of any Walking Boots event or in connection with travel to such event, however caused. By joining a walk, you indicate that you accept these conditions.

Outdoor activities frequently need specialist equipment (boots, waterproofs, etc) and the group does not provide these. You are responsible for assessing your own risk and the suitability of any equipment used. You may want to alert the walk leader to any medical condition that may affect you during the walk.

The walk leader may, at their discretion, encourage you not to join the walk if in their opinion you are ill-equipped for the terrain and weather conditions.

We usually visit a pub or café for lunch. You are responsible for alerting the eating establishment to any food allergies you may have.

Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent, grandparent etc or guardian.

Dogs are usually welcomed on walks. You are encouraged to check with the leader whether the proposed walk is suitable for dogs.
