Walking Group


This group will meet at 9:30 a.m. at various Trailheads.  We will do a brisk 60 to 90 minute walk on relatively flat ground.  Weekly walks would be led by those involved.    If you are interested, please contact Pat Bancroft at: patbancroft@telus.net or  Margaret Bates at margaretbates@shaw.ca   Everyone welcome.


A reminder to email Margaret (and copy me) on or before the Monday prior to your walk, so that the info can be sent out to everyone. What this means is you would provide  the information on the walk you are scheduled to lead (60 to 90 minutes) and also let Margaret know where you would like everyone to meet-up and where you will stop for coffee after the walk.   Margaret will then send out the weekly reminder–usually on the Monday evening.   We ask that if you are leading a walk that you try not to have excessive stairs on the walk (e.g., approx. 20 at a time seems to work; more is difficult for those with breathing and knee problems

During our absence, Margaret Bates will be coordinating the walks.   If you have any questions, please contact her at  margaretbates@shaw.ca  or phone 250 544-2177.
