Hiking

Leader-Judy Harrison
Email-Click on the blue envelope

We intend to walk in the region of 7 to 10 miles each outing, depending on the terrain, and walks should last for up to five hours, though this may be slightly shorter in winter or inclement weather. There will be one stop for a packed lunch, and we will sometimes finish at an appropriate pub or tea room. Walks are usually every 4 weeks on Tuesdays, with occasional 'challenge' walks which may be substantially longer, and/or more demanding. Walkers should be properly equipped, and are responsible for their own safety. Well behaved dogs are welcome, but must be kept on a short, non-extendable lead. They are the responsibility of their owner.

The U3A's insurance does not cover personal injury or accident except where there has been proven negligence on the part of the organisation. It is recommended walkers carry a record of any medical or contact details which may be useful in an emergency. Fellow walkers will hopefully try to be good Samaritans but neither they nor U3A can accept responsibility for actions taken or not taken.

The leader reserves the right to change publicised walks if necessary, particularly in the case of inclement weather,so always confirm your intention to attend.

Walkers who would like to join us should contact Judy Harrison.

Dates for your Diary
Tue Nov 5th We will be walking from the free car park at the junction of Narlows Lane and Gag Lane in Thorpe, opposite The Old Dog, beginning to walk at 9.30. There are a lot of options walking from here depending on the weather and conditions. The maximum distance is just under 9 miles. There will be one stop for a packed lunch, and we will have a drink in the pub at the end of the walk. Please let Judy know of your intention to walk.
