Walkers will meet outside St. Peter’s Church at 9.30am, unless otherwise stated, from where we would normally travel together by car to the starting point.
You will need strong footwear, full waterproofs, a packed lunch and something to drink. Each walk could be up to 8 miles in length, so you do need to be reasonably fit to take part.

St. Peter's Art Group

St. Peter’s Art Group meets fortnightly on Monday afternoons in the Parish Centre, from 1:30-3:30pm. The group is taking a break for the summer and starts meeting again in September.
Further details can be obtained from the Parish Office or from Ruth Robinson, the group’s co-ordinator.

The galleries on the right show some of the group members being creative, and the results of their work.
Keith Wills recently attended to critique the art and awarded three prizes to his favourites.
