Walking - Ramblers
Volunteer leaders take turns to choose a venue, recce the walk and lead it on the day (Guidelines are offered). The walks are usually 5 - 6 miles with the possibility of some hills. Wet gear and walking shoes/boots essential. We usually meet at a central point to share driving & expenses. We either take packed lunches or have lunch/snack after the walk. The emphasis is on enjoyment, good craic and convivial company, all within our safety guidelines. Happy Walking!
Meets on all but the last Thursday of each month at 10am at various venues; Give your name to Brenda and she will keep you updated on details of forthcoming walks by email.
CONVENOR: Brenda McHugh
The Third Age Trust’s Public Liability Insurance covers U3A members while out walking, but does not provide personal accident insurance. Participants on walks (including guests) should take responsibility for their own care, safety and equipment. They should remain with the group.
