Walking 3 - Strollers
Although this group is full, there is another group like this that has vacancies
|This group started in Aug 2016|
First & Third Friday
Group Liaison (Kevin Stock)
U3A strollers were formed in August 2016 for those who like a more leisurely walk and easier terrain than those undertaken by the Strider group. Walks are between 3 and 4 miles and wherever possible on reasonably flat terrain with a minimum of obstacles such as stiles.
The group meet on every 1st and 3rd Friday of the month and details of the walk and where to meet are circulated in advance, the walk usually finishes where there are facilities for refreshments.
Any member of U3A is welcome to join, non members can join a walk as a “taster” session, thereafter they would need to join to be covered by U3A insurance.
Recent walks have been from Havant to Emsworth along the foreshore, a walk round the Stansted estate, a walk along the Hamble Rail Trail and through Victoria Country Park and a walk around Hundred Acres Woods.
