Get Danbury Walking

Walking Sticks

Walking Whatsapp Group

Following the success of the Foraging Walk on 19th September 2021, several of the participants expressed an interest in a Danbury Walking Group on Whatsapp. This will enable villagers looking for walking companions to get in touch with each other! We already have several people interested.

 

We would like anyone joining the Group to play their part by suggesting walk dates, times and, if you know Danbury well, routes. This will be a great opportunity for us to explore the wonderful environment around Danbury together.

Interested in joining the group?

If you would like to join the group please email with your name and your mobile phone number and we will add you to the list!

A big Well Done to everybody who took part in the Get Danbury Walking challenges. See below for the summaries for both the Around the World in 80 Days and the Pole to Pole challenges!

 

Looking through the contributors there are a few outstanding performances. Our top family performance for the “80 days” challenge walked 2288765 steps which equates to an impressive 1144 Miles. Our top family effort for the “Pole to Pole” challenge was 1996000 steps or 998 Miles.

 

Individually the top walker on the “80 days” challenge logged up an incredible 1836535 steps or 918 Miles. Whilst our “Pole to Pole” top walker logged 1528154 steps or 764 Miles.

 

We want to recognise all the contributions made and so have prepared a special certificate for each of you. If you would like your certificate, please get in touch with us with your contact details. Please email the name(s) you used when you logged your steps and the names you want on the certificate to: getdanburywalking@outlook.com

 

We are going to take a rest from walking challenges for now, as we know you are all busy catching up with your families and friends now restrictions are easing, but we do have a new project on the horizon!

Walking Leaders Contact Information

Anna

I live in Danbury and enjoy planning routes and getting to know new areas. I am available at weekends and like to walk between 8-10 miles.

Experiencing issues sending an email to a walking leader from the above links?  Try accessing the links from desktop rather than mobile, or contact the hub to get the desired email address (not shown for confidentiality reasons).​

No matter how far or fast you can walk, you can get involved in getting Danbury walking! Whether it's with friends, neighbours or family, let's get together and get walking! If you're stuck indoors, you can still count your daily steps and join our walking challenge. Every step counts.  

 Don't forget to keep posting your photos to the Danbury Village Community Facebook page ,  along with your name, and you might see them here!  Here are some more photos for you to enjoy...

If you're interested in joining (or leading) one of our informal walking groups then call the volunteer group on 07395 904761, or email getdanburywalking@outlook.com
