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.
How it all began
With my children off to school I found I had time to explore more of the local area on foot, but the safety issue stood in my way. A small advert in the local Parish Magazine, asking for any ladies who would like to walk now and then for company and safety, resulted in 40 replies in 2 weeks, and 100 replies in a few months!
I wrote a poem about the experience. Read it here»
