Car sharing is encouraged, particularly when paying car parks are used.
Please contact the Walk Leader or Convenor if you need a lift.

The Walk Leader may change the route on the day due to conditions or for other reasons.

Walk descriptions indicate the expected degree of difficulty.
Moderate, about 2.5 hours. A fairly flat walk with, perhaps, a few gentle slopes.
Medium, about 3 hours. With several climbs and descents but none very steep.
Strenuous, about 3.5 hours. With a number of long and/or steep climbs and descents.

Walkers are responsible for their own safety. The description of a walk is an indication of the expected terrain and duration. It is the individual's responsibility to:
- ensure that suitable footwear and clothing are worn;
- not stray off route or walk in advance of the walk leader;
- exercise care at all times;
- be aware of their own fitness for the walks described;
- carry their PPU3A Membership card with emergency contact details.

The Walk Leader or the First Aider will carry a basic first aid kit and a mobile phone.

All U3A's are covered by Public Liability Insurance only. This is not a personal accident policy.

Regrettably dogs and young children are not invited on The Walking Group walks.
