Walks - Short

Our walks start and finish at various locations on Fridays throughout the year.

General Request As most of our walks start from a pub and the landlords allow us to use their carparks and often their toilets prior to the walks, out of courtesy to them, please, if you can, at the very least, on most occaisons, buy a drink or otherwise ,if possible, park nearby.
======================================================================
CAR SHARING

I have a list of walkers who are interested in sharing lifts when going on our walks. If you are interested please can you let me know, please indicate which part of the town you live in so that you can be linked with walkers living nearby. I will also need your permission to share your contact details when matching folk. The arrangement can be regular or as and when convenient to suit participants.

Regards Liz
====================================================================
There are also the Long Walks Group(6 to 7 miles) leaving at 10.00am
Medium Walks Group(5 to 6 miles) leaving at 10.00am and a 10 miles Walking Group.

Please see Dates for your Diary below for the current Walking Programme
Our Friday meetings often start at a pub. By arriving early we are usually able to use their facilities and book our lunch/snack if required with the publican. Around the halfway point on a walk we stop briefly for a 'banana' break.
=========================================================================================

WALKING HOLIDAY SEPTEMBER 2023
FROM LOUISE RADFORD
'I am pleased to send out details of the next U3A holiday which will be in St Ives Cornwall, dates 2 to 9 September 2023 and confirm it is for the 7 days this time. It is a long drive to Cornwall and many of you may want to combine sight seeing with walking.
The cost will be approximately £869 per person but we hope to reduce this a little provided we can get sufficient numbers. Please note this includes full board. There is also an open air swimming pool which should be open hopefully as it has been this year. The hotel is a short walk from the centre of St Ives. The deposit required for this trip is £100 per person which you will note is non- refundable. It is therefore advisable for you to check your dates to ensure you do not double book if you are interested in joining us for this holiday.

We hope to offer at least one walk a day and preferably 2 provided we get volunteers to lead these walks. We aim to walk 5 days with one free day in the middle for sight seeing. If you are interested in going on this holiday please contact asap'
