Preston & District

Walking

Walking Group

Our aim is to enjoy fresh air and sunshine in beautiful places, with congenial company. We are spoiled for choice with good walking in all directions from Preston.
Most walks are 4-6 miles in length and we produce a flier with full details of each walk so you can decide if it is for you.
One of the things I particularly appreciate is that different members take turns as walk leader and we all get to visit places we didn’t know existed.
We meet up at a local venue and then share cars to the start of the walk. Our favourite meeting places are The Phantom Winger, Broughton, post code PR3 5JE, and B&Q Bamber Bridge, post code PR5 6BZ.

Often we take a picnic lunch but we enjoy a stop for coffee, ice cream or sometimes lunch as well - any excuse really!

We walk on the 3rd Monday of the month and the 1st Tuesday of the month. If you intend to come on a walk please contact the walk leader in advance to let them know.

The outline of the walking programme until April 2020 has now been pencilled in after the planning meeting, you can have a look if you click link 1. It is very much a work in progress and the most up to date information is always to be seen on the current walk flyer – click link 2 for July to September 2019 or click link 3 for October 2019 to January 2020.

Thanks are due to those who attended the meeting and volunteered to lead a walk, those who couldn’t come to the meeting but volunteered to lead a walk and those who rang up after the programme was completed and volunteered to lead a walk if we have an unexpected vacancy!

Dogs Policy Up to two dogs may be allowed on each walk, but the Walk Leader may decide to have no dogs on a walk if that walk is considered unsuitable for dogs. Members wishing to bring a dog on a walk should contact the Walk Leader or myself at least 24 hours before the walk. Visitors from other U3As are not allowed to bring dogs. The dogs must be on leads near livestock. Any dog that misbehaves on a walk will be banned from subsequent walks.

Travel to the Meeting Points

I hope nobody is deterred from coming on a walk by not having transport to the meeting point.
If any member would like to come on a walk but needs a lift to the meeting point then please let me know and I will try to arrange for someone to collect them.
