Hiking Group 2 started in 2013. We meet on the first Tuesday of the month throughout the year and start at either 10:00 or 10:30am. The average walk is about 6.5 miles. To increase the variety of locations we car-share to the start points rather than relying on public transport. The walks are circular, starting and ending at the same point.
We either have a picnic lunch about midway on the walk or stop in a pub if there is one available. We never miss any opportunity for coffee and cake!
All details of walks are sent by email about 1-2 weeks before the walk by the person/s taking the walk. As with other walking groups, it is essential that everyone takes part in leading a walk, approximately once a year. We strongly encourage members to find partners for trialling the walks before the actual group walk takes place. This is for safety reasons and also because it is more fun than doing it alone!
• Only current U3A members are allowed on walks for insurance reasons.
• The group is limited to 20 members for practical reasons of safety, comfort and timing.
• No dogs are allowed.

The convenor for 2018/19 is Sue Montgomery (firstname.lastname@example.org).
