During the latter part of 1976, Drs Chapman and Murrell conceived the idea of a Bushwalking Club for the local community, as part of the St Agnes Health Centre’s Preventative Medical Programme, the idea being to promote fitness in body and mind, by which local families could take part in healthy outdoor activities.
The first programme commenced in August 1977, with weekend walks, as well asmeetings on alternate Friday evenings, when talks were given and slides shown on a variety of natural history subjects.
