We have a very active programme of walks around Oxfordshire.
We organise a local walk nearly every Sunday throughout the year, and a weekday evening walk each week from May to August; sometimes we go away for a walking weekend.
Why not come on an Oxford walk with us - the countryside is beautiful
and it's a great way to meet people and make friends.
You don't even have to be a member to come along the first time.
You can always join IVC on a three-month introductory basis for £5
after your first walk if you enjoy it.
Please contact Kate (01865 841565) if you'd like any further information.
Organised walks each week in
