Kidderminster Stride and Stroll is an organised walking group dedicated to improve the health and well being of its participants by walking safely, comfortably and within a happy pleasant atmosphere.
We are one of the largest walking groups in the Midlands and are renowned for our sociable and welcoming approach
Our walks are generally held within the Wyre Forest district or other nearby areas in North Worcestershire, Staffordshire or Shropshire.
We hold five guided walks each Saturday and a short walk on Thursday. All of our walks are graded so that all levels of walkers from novice to experienced can take part.
All walkers walk at their own risk.
There are no weekly fees or annual subscriptions to join our group and all are welcome.
Well behaved dogs on a short lead are welcome on our walks.

Dear Stride and Stroll Walk Leaders and Walkers.
Our Walks Programme Co-ordinator has written a walks programme of Saturday Progression walks commencing 3rd July 202l and Thursday Health walks on 1st July 2021. When, subject to government guidelines we are hoping to restart our walking group.
Once the programme has been finalised a printable copy will be put on the website. We would appreciate those who are able to print off a programme please do so.
As you know the Government has developed a 4 step road plan to releasing us from the lockdown. After each step the scientists say it takes 4 weeks to analyse the effects. May 17th was step 3. We are keeping our fingers crossed that the figures continue to reduce.
Some of our groups are walking in small social groups of 6 to 10 walkers in line with the current guidelines. Please feel free to start your own groups of 6 to 10 walkers and hopefully we will see you soon.
The Thursday Health Walk will be re-commencing on 1st July 2021 at Wyre Forest Visitor Centre, Callow Hill at 11.00am.
We will use this walk as a trial of the Covid secure arrangements before the full programme commencies on 8th July 2021.
update 17th May 2021.
