Our choice of golf course varies from Championship to more local courses, but always in the Midlands and we look to play at different clubs every few years.

The Walking Society

Walking_gif.gif

Austrey has a very active walking group who meet every Friday morning at 9.50am. Our usual meeting place

is the car park of the Baptist Church. However, during periods of bad weather when local trails are sodden,

we arrange to travel by car or bus to nearby sites where gravel trails allow year-round walking. 

​We are part of the Warwickshire Councils Walking for Health project and as such aim for each walk to be between 2 - 4 miles. We do, however, structure our walks to allow those who wish to go further the option

to extend their walk.

If you wish to join the group or try out one of our walks ring Pam Orton on 01827 830487 to confirm when

and where we are meeting next. Or visit our website for more information.
