The Strollers is a popular long-standing group and when it is safe to do so it is hoped that the group will resume its activities in 2021.

All that is required to enable this to happen is a volunteer for a member to become Group Leader, since Jan Burrows hung up her boots after many years dedicated planning and leading.

If you would like to offer your services and discuss this prospect please email:  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.



The Strollers enjoy short walks, on the 2nd Wednesday of the month at 10.30am, of approximately 2-3 miles and make the most of the beautiful countryside in the Wyre Forest area

These strolls are enjoyable and educational due to the abundance of knowledge in the group about the flowers, trees and wild life encountered.

If you would enjoy some gentle exercise, good company and an opportunity to learn a little more about the countryside or to share your own knowledge, why not join the group when it gets back into action?
