Group leaders: Keith and Maureen Young.   Keith and I first walked the Camino Francés in 1996 and then walked in France, part of the Camino del Norte 3 times and the Camino Inglés. We have a lot of walking friends and try to encourage them to walk the Camino and anyone else we can persuade! 

We have about 40 members.  In our Surrey Regional Group we have been visiting St James Churches in Surrey once a quarter and have lunch afterwards, when we collect money afterwards for the CSJ’s Miraz pilgrim hostel, as part of their Sponsor-a-Week scheme, as we helped restore the Albergue at Miraz in 2005.

The group is very active. Please feel free to email Maureen with any queries, ideas or suggestions.

June 2023

We meet quarterly, the last Wednesday in July, October, January and April.

We are looking for someone to lead walks, without success so far, which would add to our get-togethers.

Our next meeting will be July 26th when we will be organizing a visit near Dorking. For more information, please contact the office - [email protected].
