The Medium Walking Group

Co-ordinator:   Alison Thompson - mediumwalk@ashbyu3a.co.uk - phone 01530 455840

The leader will be at the meeting place whatever the weather and only cancel the walk in consultation with those who turn up on the day. All dogs must be kept under control at all times. Walking boots or strong shoes are recommended. Be prepared for bad weather by taking warm WATERPROOF clothing. Leaders act in a voluntary capacity. All ramblers walk at their own risk.

National U3A has issued guidelines to enable walking in large groups to take place safely. It is suggested that you read them before participating in any walks.
See here. Walking Guidelines

The walk leader is responsible for advising the webmaster of the start point of the walk, and afterwards sending him a walk report. The first aid box and list of emergency contacts will be passed on after each walk.

Monday 11th April. Ticknall Tramway and Calke Park, led by Alison

The group set off from Ticknall Village Hall car park 10.00am on a fine morning. There were 11 of us and we joined the tramway just inside Calke grounds. Underfoot was very good with non of the dreaded gooey stuff called mud. The Estate workers had been very thoughtful by felling some trees for us to sit on for our pit stop half way through the walk - much appreciated - but shame for the trees. Just under 6 miles later we arrived back at the car park at about 12.30pm.
