What could be better than spending time in wonderful countryside with plenty of fresh air and great company?

If that sounds appealing to you why not join the walking group?

We meet fortnightly on different days of the week so that all members have a chance to participate.

A schedule of walks is decided upon three months in advance. Distances vary from about five to eight miles. Members generally have lots of ideas about which walks they'd like to do and suggestions are always welcome but you don't need to feel compelled to lead one. If you would like to lead a walk you don't need to be a qualified walk leader but you need to know the walk well.

Walkers are responsible for their own safety on walks but we are all covered by the U3A for public liability.  Since the pandemic walkers are tending to go straight to the start of the walk, but as we discussed at our recent meeting some of our members are willing to car share and this can be arranged.Car sharing usually  leave from the Eversley Centre in Sherburn and  the cost of petrol is shared. Where possible  sometimes we travel on public transport. Walks are generally within an hour and a half of Sherburn but often closer to home during the winter months and of course, we're not averse to coffee and cakes en route, at the end of the walk, or both.

Following long discussions, the vast majority of members decided that they would prefer that dogs were not brought on our walks and Four Paws walking Group was set up to facilitate our four legged friends.  

If you're interested please contact us by phone or email or, if you're not sure about joining, why don't you try us out, see if you like it and then decide?
