Walkers - All Groups
It is hardly surprising that as we are surrounded by superb open countryside walking is a popular pastime in our county. Evidence of that is indicated by the 13 walking groups in South Lakes u3a. These range from GENTLE STROLLERS which aims to improve the health and fitness of the less mobile to FELLWANDERERS PLUS which organises challenging walks into the high fells. But there are several groups in between these two extremes that could suit your physical ability.
- Gentle Strollers
- Amblers 1
- Amblers 2
- Amblers 3
- Amblers 4
- Amblers Plus 1
- Amblers Plus 2
- Ramblers Plus
- Tuesday Walkers
- Fellwanderers Plus
If you are thinking of joining a walking group, please contact the appropriate coordinator before going along, as some groups limit the number on a walk for safety reasons. There is a message link on each group page.
Most of the groups meet on Thursdays (but not all at the same place or the same Thursday of the month).
Details of each walk are given on the group page.
Members make their own way to the starting points, and we encourage car sharing to minimise parking difficulties.
There is a degree of risk with any physical activity and all members must take responsibility for their personal safety and the security of their clothing, equipment and possessions. They should not undertake activities considered unsafe for them as individuals and must not endanger other members of their group. All recognised U3A groups have Public Liability Insurance but the organisation does not provide personal accident insurance.
