SMALL GROUP UK WALKING BREAKS IN 2017....... I’m Sue and I’m organising some informal UK Lesbian Walking Breaks for groups of 10-12. These are also an excuse for a friendly get-together and to explore a beautiful area (walking at different levels with a qualified guide but isn't obligatory!). The accommodation planned varies from a Country House to Self catering Holiday Homes to B and B's and also a Hostel. 2017 Locations include the North Lakes, North Norfolk Coast, Shropshire Hills, South Wales Coast and Hebden Bridge - with Tod Disco! There’s a (closed, so private) Facebook Group called STRIDING OUT, with lots of info and photos - this also gives an idea of the Breaks and the laughs that have happened in the first year, 2016. (It’s the group with about 270 members - there are several with this name on Facebook!) Please feel free to request to join. Do get in touch if you’d like more info. Email Sue: email@example.com
