Thank you for your interest in the Women's Walking Group, Purley Pathfinders.

I have lived in Purley since 1979 but there are many beautiful areas on the doorstep I have yet to explore. Now, with the company of a lovely group of ladies, I feel safe to do so. Hopefully horizons will be broadened for us all!

Walks are held weekly on a variety of days so everyone should 'get a go' each month.
