Join our walking book group in 2018!
A first for York, our monthly walks are a great opportunity to share and talk about interesting books you have read, meet friendly local people and discover easy walks and the best cafes in your area.
Three easy steps:
- Read a book around a theme
- Walk and talk about your book
- Enjoy a chat in a café afterwards
We meet 11am, first Thursday of the month, on the Millennium Bridge
Thursday 1 March – theme is Spring
Thursday 5 April – theme is Music
Thursday 3 May – theme is Birds, Wildlife and Nature
Thursday 7 June – theme is Shakespeare
Everyone is welcome!
These easy walks aim to be suitable for most ages and abilities. They are on pavements or good footpaths, mostly on the flat. They last around an hour with breaks if necessary. Please wear walking and mud-friendly shoes and bring waterproofs or sunscreen and water, depending on the forecast. We may adjourn to a cafe afterwards, depending on what the group wants to do.
Travel to Millennium Bridge: cycle parking is available either side of the Millennium Bridge. Nearest public transport is the Fulford Rd stop outside the Barracks and walk down Maple Grove or the no 11 down Bishopthorpe Rd to the Almshouses then walk down Butcher Terrace.
Volunteer leaders! We are looking for volunteers to help us run the walks, so do get in touch if you are interested.
