Co-ordinator : Linda Moreland
Group meets on varying days by arrangement so that all members have a chance to participate. Walks vary from easy rambles of 4 miles to more strenuous longer walks up to 10 miles - the average being 6 miles over undulating terrain. Pub lunch or picnic. We usually meet in the car park at Sainsbury's at Compton island to travel by car, sharing vehicles. If you want a lift please 'phone 01902 339894 the day before a walk. Walk dates are listed below. Additional details are sent out by email about a week before each walk.
If you accept a lift with another member, it is customary to make a contribution of two to four pounds, depending on distance and numbers sharing, towards the cost of travel.
A charge of 50p per walk will be made for each non-member of the U3A. This charge will be deducted from the annual U3A membership fee which participants are invited to pay after two walks as visitors.
We have been advised by the U3A National Walking
Coordinator to inform all walkers of the following:
Please note that under no circumstances will U3A or its representatives be responsible for loss of life, personal injury, medical expenses, loss or damage to personal property. It is the responsibility of members to make their own arrangements to insure against such risks if required.
Although risks are kept to a minimum, as with any physical activity, accidents can occur. Please be advised that in the event of an accident, neither U3A nor walk leaders will be held responsible.
