What is Country Link?
Country Link is an informal, social organisation for people who have an interest in the countryside. Our members come from all walks of life. Open to all.
It is a national organisation with county based groups. Each group organises their own programme of social events according to their members’ particular interests. Meetings are varied and can include walking, cycling, theatre visits, pub nights and eating out.
Views from a new member
I became a member of Derbyshire Country Link after spotting a report about their activities in our local press. As the carer of a close relative and also working as a nurse, I felt the need to get out of the house and meet new people. I was very apprehensive at the thought of joining an already established group - however my fears were completely unfounded. From my very first meeting I was made to feel really welcome. The activities are very varied. I particularly enjoy the country walks and pub lunches - something you don't tend to do alone. I now have dates to look forward to and family and friends have said I now appear happier and more relaxed. I would recommend anyone thinking of joining to give it a go, you won't regret it!
Easter fun in the snow!
