Friday Morning Walk & Talk

Where women meet and friendships are made

The weather in the Comox Valley is conducive to walking almost every day of the year! A popular Newcomers Club activity is the Friday morning walking group. We meet every Friday at 8:50 am at a designated location. After hearing a brief message about the walk, we introduce ourselves and then head out for a walk that usually lasts for about an hour. Afterwards, we get together for coffee.

 
The walks are a great way to discover walking trails and coffee shops in the area, get some exercise and, of course, meet new friends! Potential members are welcome to join us for three walks before signing up to become a member. 
 
If you are not a member, but would like to join us for a walk, please make sure to print, complete and bring a signed Waiver Form to the walk. Please note that the walks are open to women only and no pets, please.
 
Upcoming walks are listed below.
