Broomfield & District

WALKING GROUP

Another opportunity to socialise; following a walk we end up at a local pub for a spot of lunch. Nothing too strenuous - usually 4/5 or so miles dependent upon the route.

The Broomfield Footpath Society welcome any U3A members that wish to join them. Spring/early Summer and Autumn walks are on Sunday afternoons, whilst in Summer the walks switch to Wednesday evenings.

Lockdown reduced our ability to undertake a walk together. Initially we were each permitted to spend an hour of exercise outside and this several of us did - although we never met!!

Towards the latter end of 2021 we were able to meet but in single (socially distanced) file. Our usual method of reaching a walk was car sharing but Covid restrictions precluded this. Those walks we were able to undertake during 2021 were all in the immediate local area of Broomfield.

2022 started off slightly better with our annual walk alongside the River Chelmer in Chelmsford, skirting Broomfield and walking at the southern edge of Springfield. However one increasing problem we are finding is that many pubs, where we used to park and return for lunch, are now closed, only open on a few days of the week or open late afternoon/evenings only. This will limit our walking "repertoire" to those establishments that remain open at lunchtime or areas where there is sufficient parking for several cars and picnic lunch opportunities.
