The new U3A Walking 5 Strollers was formed in August 2021 for those who like a more leisurely walk and easier terrain than those undertaken by the Strider group, and more strenuous than the Stragglers group.

Walks are between 3 and 4 miles and wherever possible on reasonable terrain with a minimum of obstacles such as stiles.

The group meet on every 2nd Wednesday & 4th Tuesday each month 10am meeting with the walk taking approximately 1.5hrs-2hrs. Details of the walk and where to meet will 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.

We would appreciate any member volunteering to lead a walk and are open to suggestions of future walks.
