Hooky Swerve: September 4th
£3 will go towards running the event, admin, etc and the remainder of your sign up fee will go to support the charity. However there is no pressure to donate. You can choose whether to and by how much by selecting from the menu above.
One of our favourite charities, which "provides support for children, young people and their families in Oxfordshire when they have been bereaved or when somebody close to them is terminally ill."
Local Short Walks:
Walking is amazing for both your mind and body. Mental Health is massively improved by getting out in nature and just having a chat with friendly people. There are lots of benefits and reasons you might consider joining us for a short walk: you are starting out walking; fancy some fresh air; clear your head; meet people; get fit, etc.
These walks are designed to get you started and we walk at a pace everyone in the group feels comfortable with. Apologies if this causes any frustration to faster walkers, but this is about building a supportive community, rather than racing around the countryside as fast as we can.
- Monday 6:00pm meet, prompt 6:15pm start.
- Pear Tree Inn, Hook Norton, OX15 5NU.
- Approximately 5miles.
- Duration 2+hours.

- Remember waterproofs, walking boots/shoes, a packed lunch & water.
- Dogs are welcome, but are entirely the owner's responsibility and must have a lead and be under close control at all times.
- If encountering livestock do not walk too close or get between a cow and calf. If threatened, let go of your dog so it can escape and reduce the risk to yourself.
- Please keep to the indicated public rights of way and respect the landowner’s property at all times.
- There are often styles to negotiate on this type of walk.
- Countryside walking can often include hills and uneven terrain. Our group ethos is to support everyone in group to achieve their maximum potential in terms of completing the route. As such, we endeavour to walk at a pace all participants are comfortable with. We apologise if this causes any frustration to fitter walkers.
- Please consult your doctor if you are at all worried about your fitness and ability to take part.
- Please inform the walk leaders, Get Outdoors, of any underlying health conditions that may affect your walking ability before signing up.
We need a few more details from everyone, so we know how best to look after you. Once you have booked your walk above, please follow this link and complete some simple questions ASAP: Applicant Information Form
