If you are interested in the Walking group, please click on the Link Advice for New Walkers for more detailed information & guidance. The dates of forthcoming walks are set out below & full details are available by clicking on the Link to the particular walk located at the top right hand corner of this page. Examples of walks we have recently done can be seen by clicking on the Link Recent Past Walks.

Dogs under your personal control are welcome.

Alternatively, you may be interested in the Hiking group who undertake walks in the region of 7 to 10 miles, or the Strollers group who walk approximately 2 to 3 miles. Further details of those groups can be found on the links below.

The u3a's insurance does not cover personal injury or accident except where there has been proven negligence on the part of the organization. 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.

Volunteers are sought to lead some walks at fortnightly intervals (subject to Covid-19 regulations), each of approximately 5 miles. Please contact the Group Leader via the Blue Envelope. The Group Leader may make suggestions based on 14 years experience of organising walks (& pub lunches!) in the area.

During the Covd-19 pandemic, scheduled walks may have to be cancelled at short notice which will be issued on this website. In addition, some of the detail set out in Advice for New Walkers has to be varied to reflect current pandemic advice. Therefore do always carefully read what is set out in the relevant detailed information Link (Above right) applicable to the particular walk in which you wish to participate.

Any member wishing to participate regularly or occasionally in walks should notify the Group Leader by email so as ensure receipt of any emails periodically issued by him, especially any circulated at short notice. Any change of email address need only be issued to the Membership Secretary.
