Clubs, societies etc . . .

This section list clubs, societies etc., that don't have their own external web site or a page hosted here. I have attempted to keep the listing up to date, but bear in mind that details are sometimes changed - and those changes don't always make it to me! If you are aware of errors, please let me know.

Health Walks
Health walks are variously available here in West Moors; these 'volunteer-led' walks leave from the Penn Court Café (access via Pennington Road) - there are two varieties of this activity: one walk lasting for around 30 minutes ("Back to Health") and another for around one hour. The web site for Moors Valley linked below has more detail.

Health Walks: 

 via Moors Valley web site

In addition, there is a web site (not specifically connected with Moors Valley) that gives more detail regarding the 60-minute walks; a variety of maps and other information is indicated; as of this update (summer 2018) I have not as yet been able to verify that the site is still 'active' and whether the information is correct.
