Map Walks

Welcome to our map walk events for 2017. Each year we try to introduce as much variety as possible into our schedule. Each of these walks is an adventure, taking you into areas that most of us would not visit were it not for Volkssporting.

The Surrey Trekkers host one or two map walk events each month throughout the year.  We have a walk each July, that usually starts at a member's home, who often has a pool, and the Club supplies the food for a delicious barbeque and a cake to celebrate our anniversary.

Another significant event is our Xmas Lights walk and potluck dinner held in December. This is always a fun event to start off the Xmas season. Our members are not only good walkers, but they contribute a delicious assortment of foods for the potluck dinner. A glass of hot mulled wine does add to the evening.
