CHASEWATER STROLLERS meet every Monday at 9:30am.
Strollers are a group who meet on Monday mornings at St Anne's Church before taking their toddlers for a walk around Chasewater. They meet during term-time at 9:30am. If you would like to know more call into St Anne's Church on a Monday morning to meet the leader Mrs Esther Allen.
Chasewater Strollers is a buggy walking group for anyone with a little one to exercise in the fresh air at the lovely Chasewater Country Park Reservoir. Moms, dads, grandparents, carers, childminders; everyone is welcome. All you need is a small child, a pushchair/stroller/pram and some comfortable footwear.
We are a friendly group and you will be made very welcome. For Moms -come along and work off the post-baby weight and exercise without having to find childcare for your little one.
Walking with a baby/toddler is great for them and you and exercising outdoors is great for your physical and mental health. Meet other likeminded parents and grandparents, make new friends and have a good chat along the route.
We will walk about 3 miles which takes just under one hour at a medium pace. We will walk in all weathers so bring appropriate footwear, coats, hats, sunscreen etc! The route we take is flat and the paths are mostly tarmac and hard surfaces. Occasionally small areas of the path can get a bit muddy in winter so don’t bring a treasured pram that you would mind getting a little dirty! (You don’t need a fancy special off-road all terrain buggy
Following the walk we meet for refreshments in the Church while the babies and toddlers have time to play.
The walk is free. It is led voluntarily. So you come on the walk at your own risk!
All the info you need: Chasewater Strollers meet on Monday mornings. We meet from 9:30 and set off walking promptly at 9:45am. You can park for free. There are baby change and toilet facilities at the Church.
Don’t forget to bring: • Appropriate footwear • Waterproof coats if the weather looks iffy • Raincover for the pushchair • A drink • Your baby!

Strollers had a good 2017. Thank you to Rachel who has been with Strollers for three and a half years and has kept the wheels rolling! With Samuel being born last Spring I have enjoyed coming back to help again.
We have between 10-20 mums and grandmas come each week with their babies and toddlers. No Dads at the moment but they are very welcome! We walk around Chasewater first which takes us about one hour fifteen minutes at a semi-brisk pace, depending on the weather, and then we have drinks, snacks and a play. The session finishes with some songs and nursery rhymes. The walk is free with a donation for refreshments. We've had quite a few twins, toddlers with baby siblings, two week old babies, and our longest member is Tilly who is three.
Strollers have had some special events this year such as a Christmas party and we've made Christmas crafts. We've also made pottery with the children's foot and hand prints.
The benefits of the group are that parents, carers and grandparents get a chance to exercise and do something for themselves, which boosts wellbeing, whilst also making friends and getting out into nature. We feel so lucky to have beautiful Chasewater on our doorstep. A lot of the babies go to sleep on the walk then benefit from socialising and play opportunities afterwards.
We are in need of an additional helper to walk with us or even once a month depending on their availability. No baby required! We are very grateful to Margaret Malley and Jean Spraggett for helping us with refreshments. It is so lovely to get back to a cuppa. Thank you to Richard and St Anne’s for making everyone so welcome each week.
We have a core group of regulars who walk in all weathers and look forward to the feel good factor that walking brings. Thank you to everyone that enables this to take place and we are celebrating four years of strolling this Easter!
