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 Future walks - details. 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. Peter’s labrador invariably accompanied him until she was over 12 years old.

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 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.

Volunteers are sought to lead some walks at fortnightly intervals (once the Coronavirus regulations allow us to resume), each of approximately 5 miles. Please contact Peter Worboys at p.worboys@outlook.com. Peter can make suggestions based on 12 years experience of organising walks (& pub lunches!).

During the Coronavirus lock down, Quizzes are periodically being arranged via Zoom, based upon past walks undertaken by the group. See "Dates for your Diary" below for further details.

Another 40 minute session on Zoom to check the answers of participants to the Quiz held at 3.30pm.
Wed Jul 22nd 9.30am: A walk had been provisionally planned for today but Covid 19 regulations & advice still render it impossible for Ashbourne & District U3A to accept the legal & moral responsibilities of organizing such walk, even limiting numbers to 6 & observing social distancing.
