Stiles & Smiles Walking Group

Smiles and Stiles is a walking group where most walks are within 20 miles of Hedge End and each ends with a pub lunch, or occasionally the lunch is in the middle of the walk. From time to time, walks further away are organised, to increase variety. Walks are usually 4 to 5 miles

Group members take turns in organising a walk and a lunch venue and they circulate walk details to the group.

There is a planning meeting in January and group members put their names down against scheduled walk dates for the following year. The calendar is then published to the group.

The group has a library of walks for anyone not familiar with organising walks and most group members are happy to help. In fact most walks are organised by members working in pairs.

In December, the group usually has a short walk before a Christmas lunch at a suitable pub.

No special equipment is required on the walks, but a stout pair of shoes or boots is recommended as some walks can be muddy. In addition some sort of waterproof or rain resistant top is recommended for days when rain threatens or is falling.

The group is very friendly and welcomes new members. If you are a new or existing U3A member and are active and happy to get involved, then please get in touch.
