SOLENT GROUP: We organise walks in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. These are normally held on the 3rd Sunday of each month plus some midweek walks and occasional joint walks with other GOC groups. Distances normally range between 6 and 10 miles which is easily within most peoples capabilities. We are a friendly group and extend a very warm welcome to all newcomers on all our walks.

Ian Martin is the Solent Group Co-ordinator.  To get in touch with Ian, please use the contact facility at the bottom of this page or phone direct ( 07803 056989 )

FUTURE EVENTS : To view our future planned walks, have a look at our Events page.

PAST EVENT REPORTS : You can see details of the group's past activities by viewing our Event Reports 

ATTENDING A WALK : While there is no need to advise us in advance if you are planning to attend a walk, it is helpful  if you could add your name to the attendee list. It's no problem if you remove it later should you have to change your plans.

LEAD A WALK FOR US: If you fancy having a go at leading a walk please speak to Ian at one of our events or send a message via the contact links above. We always need new walk leaders to keep the group thriving, make the walks as varied as possible and to make sure the walks reflect the kind of event members enjoy the most.

NEW TO GOC : Not sure what to wear?/Can i walk the distance?/ Am i too slow for the Group?/Will i fit in with the Group?

We have all been there. No special equipment is required though it helps to be prepared for the vagaries of weather. The walk is very social so distance is not a chore. We always walk at the slowest persons pace (average just over 2 miles per hour including stops). Rest assured you will be warmly welcomed. Feel free to contact the Group Co-Ordinator for a pre walk chat if it helps. Use your 4 month Free Trial Membership to walk with us and "try us out" before taking out full annual membership (only £17). This gives you full access to the walk information and also attendees. Join us and make some new friends.
