At the end of June we re-started our programme of walks - in compliance with National U3A Guidelines and Risk Assessment.

The walks, in groups of no more than 6, are local and do not involve sharing transport.

Directions to the start of the walk are being emailed.

There will be no organised walks in August. We will publish here, a programme for the Autumn

We are now in our sixth year of walking many Extra Miles in the beautiful Hampshire & West Sussex countryside, walking off road as much as possible. Walks are usually between 6 and 9 miles and we encounter hills, uneven terrain & stiles. With the right clothing & footwear we are not put off by weather or wet ground conditions. Future walks are listed below but may be subject to change depending on decisions made by the leader or weather conditions.

The group has continued to expand and there are often 15 of us walking together. We have a growing number of walk leaders who take turns to plan and lead walks. Our collection of walks are all on file and many more are being explored to extend our repertoire. We are pleased to welcome new walkers especially anyone who would be keen to get involved in planning and leading walks. Please see the links to other information on this page.

We meet at Holbrook Leisure Centre at 9.25 am to organise lifts and are ready to set off at 9.30am to drive to the start of the walk. We are usually back in the Gosport area between 3pm and 4pm.

If you are interested in joining or would like more information please contact Kathy or Yvonne on the telephone numbers above or send an email from this page.
