The British Walking Federation (BWF) is a member of the International Federation of Popular Sports (IVV). The Waendel Walkers Club was formed in 1981 and became the first club to join the BWF (IVV). We are the most active club in the Federation. All walks are registered with the BWF(IVV) and on completing an event you can claim a stamp towards the IVV award scheme. For further information e-mail our IVV Representative of the Club.
On all our walks we provide a detailed route description so that you can walk at your own pace on your own or with a group. You can meet new people and improve your fitness as well as enjoying the countryside in all seasons and weather.
The Club organises a Winter and Summer series of walks of 10 or 20 kms on alternate Sunday mornings throughout the year starting at 10 a.m. We also organise a series of Wednesday evening walks in the Summer of 10 kms starting at 6 p.m. Each of these walks cost 50p to enter. A portion of the walk fees is donated to charity each year.
We run four COACH TRIPS a year in March, June, September and December to the seaside or countryside, for sightseeing or walking.
We have a three distance SPECIAL EVENT every year in April from Wilbarston of 40 kms, 25 kms and 12 kms approximately to which walkers come from all over the country as well as from abroad.
We have two walks over CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR where you can walk off the Christmas pudding and walk in the New Year.
We have two social events a year in spring and autumn that are presentation evenings and a Christmas Draw night in December.
