Walks Medium 2
This Group meets on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of each month, usually meeting at 9.30 am. Please contact the Group Coordinator for further information.
We walk for approximately two to two-and-a-half hours covering an approximate maximum distance of six miles. Walks normally take place within the county but we have been known to stray over the border into Wales. The pace of walking can be described as fairly leisurely and we tend not to do any too strenuous walks involving hills and mountains, generally sticking to low undulating areas.
All walks are planned, organised and led by individual members or jointly with another. On average this would result in members organising at least one walk per year. If members commence at the Park and Ride they share lifts to minimise expenditure and to enjoy one another's company. Rates payable to the drivers are in accordance with those set out by the U3A.
The best part of the day for many members is that, on completion of the walk, we participate in lunch and some light refreshment in a local pub before returning home. To summarise: members enjoy getting out and about in the countryside, participating in a reasonable amount of gentle exercise, visiting some good pubs and, above all, enjoying each other's company.
