Welcome to the CMFA website
RESUMPTION OF WALKING FOR HEALTH
Walking for Health restarts on May 12th walking twice monthly on 2nd & 4th Wednesday. There will be no organised post walk refreshments at present . As an 'organised physical activities group' Covid regulations allow us to walk in groups larger than 6 whilst retaining social distancing. However, we will try to split into small groups until Covid regulations ease. Walks will remain local for the time being. Meet by the Market Hall in time for a 10am start. Trained leaders carry third party insurance. Walkers are responsible for their own safety and should wear adequate clothing including stout footwear. If you have not joined us in the past but would like a short walk then contact Alan or Deana Kimber on 01299 271754 as we may need to limit numbers if take up is high.
WALKS THROUGH THE GLEN CARAVAN PARK
Over the next few months, some repairs are going to be carried out to the wall alongside the footpath through the Glen Caravan Park. Occasionally, during that time, it will be safer for all if the path is not used. An alternative route through the site will be made available and signposted.
CMFA maintains footpaths up to 5 miles around Cleobury Mortimer, clearing overgrown routes and putting in gates, stiles, fingerposts etc to make footpaths more accessible.
We are part of a network of volunteer groups in Shropshire and are supported by the Council’s staff. See Footpaths Work
For more information about us, including how to join CMFA see About Us.
Our members lead a range of group walks. These include:
Short Walking for Health walks for the little less able.
Local Parish Walks of about 2 hours on Sunday mornings.
Longer Social Walks away from Cleobury.
The walk guides are available to download or to purchase and many of them can now be downloaded to your phone. Please go to the Walk Leaflets page of this website.
KNOWN PROBLEMS ON FOOTPATHS IN THE AREA: If you plan to walk one of our described routes or just make your own way, we offer a list of known problems on footpaths in the area - then please click on this link.
When walking in the countryside, please follow the Countryside Code. This link will open an informative leaflet on the code itself and gives plenty of information on the need for control of your dog, respecting the privacy of land owners and other matters.
