Welcome to Devon GOC
Devon GOC is a friendly and welcoming group. We have a varied programme of walks and other social events. All our planned activities are shown in the 'Events' section below and reports on previous walks/social events are in the 'Reports' section.
We generally walk on the 1st Sunday of each month and also try to include one weekday walk per month. This is generally on a Wednesday towards the middle of the month.
Social events take place throughout the year including cinema trips, garden visits and 10 Pin Bowling! We are always looking for new ideas so if you have a suggestion we would love to hear from you.
There are a variety of walks in our programme. They can be short or long, easy or more challenging, rural or urban. The website gives details for each walk including distance and difficulty. If you have any questions about a walk the event organiser will be happy to chat with you.
As an added incentive most of our activities will include a coffee and cake pit stop at the end or even a Devonshire Cream Tea!!
Individual members lead each walk which allows us to benefit from 'local' knowledge and the more members who are able to lead an event the more varied our programme will be. There is however no obligation on anybody to lead an event so joining us purely as a participant is fine.
It is preferred for you to register for an event on the website. That way we know who to expect on the day. However you can simply join us for the event without registering if you prefer.
Our group is delighted to see new members – everyone is welcome (all genders) We will do our very best to make you feel at home so please do come along. Generally there are between 10 and 20 members who attend an event. Events are very relaxed and friendly and are a good opportunity to make new friends and of course to meet up with old ones!
The 4 month free trial membership is a great way of 'testing the water' and seeing if GOC is for you.
If you would like more information and would like to talk to one of the volunteer group coordinators (Roy Stephenson or Mike Flack) please feel free to make contact using the form at the bottom of this page or call Roy on 07747 815070.
Joining a new group can sometimes seem a little daunting but we are a friendly and welcoming bunch so we hope to see you soon.
