T he Hubberton Hikers were originated from an idea by Andrew Bradley (now known as LEADER) talking with Jonathan Lord.
The idea first arose in July of 2000 while they were on the out-set of the Pennine way, after Brian Ennis of the Thursday night quiz team asked Andrew to create some local walks for the “Elderly”.
After many months of planning the first hike was planned for October 26th 2002 on which twenty six people and one dog (Sally) turned out. It was then decided after such a great response to hold one hike every month on a given date. This has now gone on at a tremendous pace with a probable total now of over a hundred different and a nucleus of forty hikers. Many friendships have been instigated through the club and I’m sure many more will follow, not only for hikers but for their pets too.
Twice a year in May and September, the hikers go Youth Hostelling to different areas. For example we have been to Castleton in Derbyshire and Stainforth in the Yorkshire Dales. The Youth hostelling was instigated by Andrew and two Coventry “Lads” whom he met on the Pennine way, Martin Towe and Brian Vicars .
In 2004 we successfully completed the 3 Peaks Challenge for various charities, and in 2005 the Lyke Wake Walk, 42 miles in one day, across the North York Moors. In more recent years a week of overseas hiking has become an annual fixture.
The beauty about such a good team is that ANYBODY can join us on our Monthly walks at very little if any cost! If anybody would like further information, please call the LEADER on 01422 839881 or 07941 072530, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
