The Medium Walking Group

Co-ordinator:   - mediumwalk@ashbyu3a.co.uk -

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.
