NEWCOMERS are being encouraged to join a walking club.

Members of the Portsmouth CHA Rambling Club take in the stunning views of the surrounding countryside every Wednesday, and some Saturdays.

All walks are designed to ensure they can be reached by public transport and are a maximum of seven miles.

Adele Mallows, from the group, said: ‘We are fairly laid back. We are serious walkers but it’s not heads down and keep going.

‘We like to stop and look at things, take photos.’

Take a packed lunch.
