Walks - Long 1

Our walks start and finish at various locations on Fridays throughout the year.
Long Walks 1 (4.5 to 7 miles) leaving at 10.00am (Please note this group is currently full)
Long Walks 2 (4.5 to 7 miles) leaving at 10.00am
There is also a short walks group, about 3 miles long.

Leaders and Contacts: Pete and Jacki Ager (Long Walks 1); Shan South (Long Walks 2)

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.

Walks are usually planned and led by the group members ensuring a wide variety of locations. Help in planning walks is always available and new walk leaders are encouraged.

The group combines with the short walks group and holds an Annual Meeting in January each year. A nominal subscription of £1 pa is collected at the meeting to help pay for maps, paper, ink etc.

If you would like to join the Long Walks 2 Group, first join the U3A, then email your U3A number and details to Shan South. U3A policy is that dogs are not allowed on U3A walks.

We also organise an annual walking holiday, which is open to all group members and partners and is based in one of the hotels operated by HF Holidays. There are a selection of walks organised by group members available each day providing a choice of terrain and distance. Hotel bookings are full board and walks are organised by group members. Worcester U3A Walking Group is affiliated to HF Holidays and enjoys exclusive benefits and discounts. Walkers make their own way there and numbers are usually such that we have exclusive use of the hotel. Holidays are popular and usually fill up at the Annual Meeting.
