Information for the Short Walks Group- from Wendy Proctor, Group Co-ordinator
Due to the rising numbers of Short Walkers I have decided in the interest of Health & Safety, Parking and Lunch arrangements that we can no longer offer the opportunity for U3A members to join freely in a walk. There have been over 100 walkers during the past year which is wonderful for so many to want to keep fit but a statistical dilemma if even more than half the number arrived! A great many of our walkers are keen to attend several (10+) walks a year and there are many new walkers who are very keen. This group is now for regular walkers only. I have a Short Walks Membership List. The names on the list include the regular walkers who have attended a walk this year and the new walkers who have attended at least 3 walks this year. If you have attended less than 3 walks this year please ring me. The list is 60 people so we still can't all turn up at once but I don't think this will happen! The ideal number for walking is less than 40 and as many eating venues could not accommodate so many there may sometimes be a limit for lunch. Please let me know if you cannot walk for a period of time or decide against walking as we will have a waiting list.
Please note this arrangement applies to the' Short Walks Group' only.
