Walking 2 - Monday Strollers
Welcome new and old(?) members to the Strollers Walking Group. I am very pleased that you have signed up to join our walks and all the details are below.
All walks are on the 3rd Monday of each month meeting at 9.45 for a 10.00am start unless advised as different, starting in September. The walks are 3 - 4 miles in length.
Full details will be sent out approx.1 week before each walk by E mail. I have attached the draft programme of walks but more suggestions are needed and/or offers to lead are gratefully received.
We try to arrange lifts if required. I will supply contact details of the Transport Organiser when I send out the details before the walk, and she will try to put you in touch with a member who lives near you. If you are happy to offer lifts to others in the group who do not have transport and are happy for your contact details to be given to another U3A member, please let me know your phone number as soon as possible which I will pass on to our transport co-ordinator. If you need a lift contact details will be supplied in the e mail giving details of the current walk together with details of voluntary sharing the petrol costs.
If you wish to attend please ring the leader on the morning of the walk between 8.30-9.00am to check that the walk will be still going ahead. Please bring your new membership card to show me on your first walk.
Leaders are needed for each walk, and we would not be able to continue these walks without volunteers to lead, so please consider maybe offering to lead your favourite walk. It will need to be walked in advance to check that it has not changed since your last visit and that it is not too muddy and that there are no new obstacles in place.
On 20th January we will be walking from Shoreham Beach along the coast into Worthing. The leader will be Margaret, as usual we will meet at 9.45 for 10.00am meeting up on the coastal footpath by widewater car park. There is some free on-road parking in the area.
Please ring Margaret on 01273 596910 on the morning of the walk between 8.30 and 9.00am to advise if you are coming, and to check if the walk is not cancelled due to the weather. If anyone requires a lift please ring Fleur our Transport Organiser on 01273 461404, 3-4 days before the walk and she will try to put you in touch with someone who lives near you.
After stopping for coffee in Worthing we can either walk a little further along the promenade or jump on a bus back to Shoreham (don't forget your bus pass!!).
My new landline phone number is 01903 263904 so please change your records so you can ring me if you have any queries.
PLEASE NOTE: everyone walks at their own risk and U3A cannot accept any responsibility for walkers personal safety although coordinators do try to advise on any known dangers e.g. stiles, rough ground, beware the bull, etc! Please ensure you always have your mobile phone with you and turned on in case of emergency and that you have my mobile number 07904 976446 stored so that you can get in touch with me if needed.
I have coped below the walks schedule for the rest of the year, please note we need volunteers to fill the gaps.
