All Season Walking group
All Season Walking Group (ASWG)
The COVID-19 lockdown announced in January 2021, requires us to pause walks until further notice.
The waiting list remains open, please contact Richard Argyle via email link.
Please see E.G. U3A web site for information updates.
Meeting on the 2nd Tuesday of the month, routes will be ‘circular’ between 4 & 6 miles, expected to last 2 to 3 hours.
Should it be necessary to change the day / date from the 2nd Tuesday, ample notice will be given.
The start / finish will often be a pub, but where it is not, a place of refreshment will be fitted into the route. An appropriate menu will be emailed with the joining instructions. Members are encouraged to pre-order lunch, when attendance is confirmed. If members circumstances change it is their responsibility to cancel pre-ordered food.
Members should be reasonably fit, have suitable ‘walking’ clothing / boots etc. (See link - Guide to personal walking clothing) Be capable of negotiating stiles & able to maintain a walking pace to meet the distance / time scales mentioned above. Well behaved dogs are welcome. (see link - Guidelines for dog owners)
It is a membership requirement to complete a GDPR form and to sign a ‘Disclaimer’, (see link) absolving the Walk Leader and / or the U3A from liability should any loss or accident occur – thus members are responsible for their own Personal Accident occurrences, their own Health and /or Safety and the safe-keeping of their belongings.
Cost is an annual £2.00 membership plus the standard 50p U3A Group event attendance fee
For ease of administration the group year runs from the September enrolment day. Further, if the fee is not paid within 3 months the member will be deemed to have voluntarily left the group.
The annual fee will be collected on the first walk you attend, back dated to September.
