ANNUAL REVIEW 2017
It’s business as usual for the walking group since the excellent hand over by Brian in July, attendance continues to average 33 participants, our last walk for the year was on 14th November from ‘The Coach & Horses’ Brixworth. Ruby Harris continues to help out with the strollers, and our year-end financial balance means we enter 2018 with a small float.

A SPECIAL DAY OUT
On Tuesday 9th May 2017, 30 walkers and 24 strollers celebrated the 100th walk by Brixworth & District U3A with a first visit to the Northamptonshire village of Lowick near Thrapston, and lunch afterwards at The Snooty Fox. During the nine years since the group made their first outing, they have visited 66 different pubs in the county and neighbouring counties. The picture on the right captured the group before setting off on the walk.
