All Day Walkers 1
The Group’s walks are about 5 miles in length, and take place once a month in the morning, starting at 10am, and ending with lunch in a pub. All walkers (who must be U3A members) are welcome. Please let the leaders know by the previous day if you intend to join the walk, and to confirm the details.
