Guided Walks

For details of each month's walk Email: stgeorgesflowerbank@gmail.com or bobbuck1430@gmail.com

 

Our monthly walks continue but we now have no permanent base, preferring to have a pub-based circular walk within reasonable distance of Pill.

Most walks start about 10am and finish for lunch at 1 pm.

Walks are three to five miles long covering local wildlife, history and interest

Led by local enthusiasts and conservation volunteers: Bob Buck, Giles Morris


St. George’s Flower Bank Walk dates 2021

 “Bob, the thanks are to you, Giles and Mike for arranging so many good entertaining walks over such a long period!!  

    We really appreciate the results of your efforts!!!!”

Notes for new walkers


Welcome to the St. George’s Flower Bank Walking Group.


What we offer is a short-ish walk over mostly easy terrain starting at or near a pub where we repair for lunch.  Normal meeting time is 10 a.m. with lunch at 1p.m.  We don’t travel too far – Ham Wall in Somerset and the Forest of Dean have been the furthest; often much closer to Bristol.  Walks are usually on the third Wednesday every month.


January's walk has for a couple of years been different in that we meet for lunch first and then walk on the Levels ending up watching the Starling roost – wherever that is on the Avalon Marshes.


The pace is always leisurely and we take time to point out anything and everything of interest, which includes natural history, geology, archaeology and local history.  Giles Morris and I have a wide range of knowledge which covers all these subjects to some degree.


Obviously some dates won't be convenient for everyone.  That's no problem at all.  If and when you might like to join us you will be most welcome.  There is no expectation that anyone will be available every time.  We do invite you to make a £5 donation to help the work of the Flower Bank.


You are now officially part of the "Friends of St. George's Flower Bank" - a large number of people who support and encourage our efforts – also you’ll get our occasional newsletters and messages about wildlife and related matters.  


Thanks for your interest.

Best wishes
Bob
