Thursday Evening Walks

There is a sociable walk most Thursday evening throughout the year.
These walks are around the Newport area and the length is 4 to 4.5 miles, therefore 2 hours duration.
Always meet at the start point which is generally in the vicinity of a pub, so walkers can stay for a social pint after the walk or not.
In the summer the walks are on footpaths and during the winter months they tend to be more urban.
Details of the walk are posted to the NOG Facebook page and NOG Meetup the Sunday before the walk.
