Bushwalkers wanted

Members of the Cobram Bushwalking Club.

COBRAM Bushwalking Club is hoping to attract some new members.

The group started in 1991 under the auspices of Cobram Community House, with its first walk to Ulupna Island.

‘‘We haven’t been getting lot of new members and I believe that is simply because people don’t really know who we are here and don’t know what we do and how we do it,’’ club secretary Eleanor Langton said.

‘‘We can’t rely on the same people to keep being on the committee and to be doing all the planning because it starts to wear off and ideas can become stale. We need input from other people.’’

The club wants to attempt to cater for a range of fitness levels, offering easy walks and more strenuous ones for those wanting a challenge.

Some of the places the group has travelled to for walking expeditions have included Tasmania, Kangaroo Island, the Grampians, Mt Hotham, Falls Creek and the Mornington Peninsula.

Membership costs $25 which covers affiliation and insurance fees. 

The group will meet on Thursday at the Barooga Sports Club garden room and encourages anyone interested in joining to come along.
